Obesity

In 2016, nearly 40% of the U.S. adult population was obese.1

Obesity could impact more than half the population by 2030.Evidence shows that obesity is a critical underlying driver behind several of the most expensive and deadly diseases, and yet a modest 3% to 5% sustained loss of body weight is likely to result in clinically meaningful health benefits.3

While there is no single approach to treating obesity, experts agree successful weight loss and maintenance requires a comprehensive lifestyle approach that includes dietary modification, physical activity, and behavior therapy. 

At Nestlé Health Science, we are actively engaged in developing nutritional therapies to help improve conditions like obesity and the quality of life of patients with such conditions.
