Behavioral, psychological, and environmental predictors of obesity and success at weight reduction.

Journal Article (Review;Journal Article)

Several behavioral, psychological, and environmental factors are related to the likelihood that an individual will be obese and to that person's chances of success at weight reduction. This paper identifies ten such factors and proposes that this combination of factors will explain as much of the nonphysiological variance in weight change as current knowledge will permit.
