Description

To battle obesity, we must understand the mathematics of weight loss and learn to look beyond the numbers. This continuing education quiz discusses the energy balance equation. We are taught that weight loss is simply an equation of calories in versus calories out. If only it were that simple. There is no magic formula for weight loss, of course, but researchers have developed many mathematical models to help us better understand how the body sheds weight. This quiz examines major concerns associated with these calculations (they are far from perfect) and then discusses simpler solutions that empower all of us to confront one of the most vexing issues of our times: obesity.
