Adult weight management evidence-based nutrition practice guidelines have been proposed by American Dietetic Association (ADA). These guidelines and recommendations are based on the analysis of recent evidence by ADA. These guidelines also include recommendations and suggestions from the program on Identification, Evaluation and Treatment of Overweight and Obesity in Adults, which was developed by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) in collaboration with National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases in 1995. The chair of Adult Weight Management Evidence-Based Guideline Workgroup was Christina Biesemeier and these guidelines were released in May 2006.
All the recommendations and suggestions in this guideline are evidence based. As stated earlier, most of the recommendations have been adapted from the analysis done by NHLBI. The analysis involved a thorough review of existing literature and includes summaries and worksheets of important studies. All the randomized controlled and clinical trials, case control studies and observational studies done in this area were reviewed and recommendations and guidelines were formulated on the basis of their results.
