Chronic obesity decreases efficiency and shortens life expectancy, especially through the increased incidence of cardiovascular disease and diabetes. The control of chronic obesity is therefore a definite and important problem in preventive medicine. Much has been written regarding the cause or causes of chronic obesity but, in the final analysis, obesity results from an excess of energy intake over the energy demands of the body. The control of obesity must lie in a reversal of this relationship with the creation of a deficit on the side of the intake as compared with the expenditure of energy.
