Abstract: Overweight and its more extreme condition, obesity, have been designated as "the number one health problem today." (3:23) This is a credible statement in light of the facts published in a Public Health Report of 1954 which indicated that twenty per cent or more of the United States population was at that time overweight. The estimates quoted were based upon evidence gathered in four different studies completed at different times and in different geographical locations. (10) These estimates have been substantiated by numerous empirical observations and the current periodical literature abounds in articles concerned with weight control.
