Abstract
What is a safe, achievable and clinically meaningful goal for weekly weight loss? Both health care professionals and individuals seeking guidance on losing excess weight ask this question. The answer to this question relies on carefully collected data and accurate mathematical model construction. Advances in weight loss monitoring technology, clinical measurements, and computers have led to an explosion of improved mathematical weight loss prediction models. In this presentation, I will review mathematical models of human body weight regulation, and recent results from a clinical trial on model application to facilitate weight change.
