A dramatic increase in the number of people who are overweight or obese in this country presents a growing public health problem. Successful weight loss requires diet, physical activity, and behavior modification interventions. Weight loss diets with distinctively different macronutrient profiles have resulted in short-term weight loss. There is great interest in identifying the most effective strategies to achieve long-term weight loss. Individualizing weight loss interventions, including diet, will be important to facilitate significant weight loss on a population basis. Nurses and nurse practitioners can play an integral role in supporting their patient's weight loss efforts.
