This decision aid is to help people who are obese decide about treatments to lose weight. People who are diagnosed as obese are very overweight and have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or more. Being obese means people are more likely to have a health problem or illness. People who change their eating and exercise habits can lose weight and are less likely to become ill.
