 In the US, the adult obesity (symposiums) rate for 2014 is 27.7 %, according to new Gallup-Health ways data which was 27.1% in the year 2013, highest annual rate ever measured by the polling organization. So far this year, only 35 % are considered "normal weight." Obesity which was recently recognized as a disease by the American Medical Association disproportionately affects certain demographic groups. According to it black adults still have the highest obesity rate of any group (35.5 %), while young adults between ages 18 and 29 have the lowest (17.0 %). The obesity rate was highest in the South (29.2 %), followed by the Midwest (28.6 %), while in the eastern United States, 25.6 % of adults are obese, and in the West, 24.1 % are obese. Individuals with BMI values of 30 or above are considered "obese." A BMI of 25 to 29.9 lands someone in the "overweight" category. People with a BMI of 18.5 to 24.9 are classified as "normal weight," while those with a score of 18.4 or less are considered "underweight." The global weight loss/obesity management market was worth $265 billion in the year 2012 and is expected to reach $361 billion by 2017. The market will grow at a healthy pace in the next five years due to increasing number of lifestyle diseases such as diabetes and cardiac problems and many more.

Scope and Importance:
•        The United States is facing a serious epidemic. Recent nationwide surveys reveal that 66 percent of adults have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 25 or greater, classifying them as either "overweight" or "obese." Unfortunately, this epidemic is not only affecting adults. We are now seeing increasing numbers of overweight children and teens. As the weight of Americans rises, so do the secondary risks associated with obesity. These risks include cardiovascular disease, hypertension, dyslipidemia, type 2 diabetes, stroke, osteoarthritis and even cancer. The chart below shows how in the U.S., for instance, poor diet and lack of adequate physical activity are the second leading underlying causes of death, second only to tobacco use.                  
•       Researchers reported that the risk of developing diabetes, gallstones, hypertension (high blood pressure), heart disease, and stroke increased progressively with the level of being overweight among both women and men. The most obese members of the study population were 20 times more likely to develop diabetes than their normal weight peers. This conference may provide a comprehensive study on weight loss and fitness management.
