Obesity prevalence in Europe remains stable at 20–25% of the adult population. This presentation explores two related, previously underutilised foci for potentially effective obesity control interventions; weight loss attempts and weight loss maintenance. The psychological and public health considerations about how people manage personal weight control attempts and how they can best be supported in keeping weight off once they lost it are illustrated based on a range of systematic reviews, qualitative and quantitative studies.
