Overweight and obesity have the potential to be a largely preventable risk factor for chronic disease, yet persist as an epidemic across all lifestages and most countries in our world. A consquence of several factors, including unhealthy lifestyle choices, poor mental health and wellness, negative social influences, sedentary lifestyle, poor dietary choices, and lack of access to physical activity opportunities, its complex, multifactorial nature makes prevention incredibly challenging. This Special Issue will examine successful dietary and exercise interventions to mitigate and control overweight and obesity, while including all possiblities and excuding none. Considering that there are many ways to approach this problem, all successful means to reduce and maintain weight loss in overweight and obesity will be acknowledged and accepted. We welcome submission of data using animal and human models. Reviews and original work will be considered for publication.
