Overweight and obese individuals often find it difficult to lose weight and keep it off. Health care providers are uniquely positioned to engage in a dialogue with these patients about their weight and the health risks associated with it. By building a partnership, health care providers can help individuals develop weight loss goals that they can achieve and sustain.

Practical, evidence-based strategies and tools that are based on research supported by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) are available for clinicians, patients, and the general public to prevent or treat overweight and obesity. The Aim for a Healthy Weight Web site offers resources that include guidelines on assessing weight and health risk, information on controlling weight, advice and resources on eating right and being physically active, and healthy weight tools such as a body mass index (BMI) calculator and menu planner.
