Obesity is a global public health concern. The greatest weight gain in adulthood occurs in early to mid-twenties. Women in this age group were twice as likely to gain weight compare with age-matched men. Obesity or weight gain in young adulthood is associated with significantly increased risks of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, or premature death. In addition to these long term sequelae, obesity also affects the reproductive and psychosocial health of young women in the short term. Despite this, weight loss studies on this group are sparse and research is imperative to understand which approaches may be most successful. Weight loss has been shown to improve metabolic and reproductive health. However, long term weight management could be a considerable challenge in this group. Although many young women do attempt to lose weight, their commitment seems to be shortlived as young women are also more likely to drop out of weight loss interventions.
