Extracts from Royal College of Physicians working party report: 'Action on obesity: Comprehensive care for all.' (Jan 2013).
- Obesity increases risk of diabetes 5 times, colon cancer 3 times and heart disease two and a half times.
- An energy deficiency of only 100kcal (eg a small glass of wine, a slice of white bread, a chocolate biscuit) per day predicts a 0.5kg weight loss in a month.
- Prevention (of obesity) and long term weight loss maintenance require sustained changes in diet and physical activity habits.
