“Energy Balance”: The New Mantra For Dealing With Obesity?

June 25, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
Scientists in the U.S. are now touting the idea that diet plus exercise – or “energy balance” – is the proper way to deal with the obesity problem, and should be encouraged by public health policies. In a recent scientific paper, nutrition and exercise professionals – who currently work “in silos” but need to work together – were encouraged to bone up on the principles of energy balance so that their coaching and teaching include all sides of the energy balance message. The paper provided a list of recommendations for tackling the obesity problem at the school and government levels, incorporating the principles of energy balance in curricula and public policies.
