Authors' objectives:

To assess the effectiveness of interventions used in the prevention and treatment of obesity and the management of weight loss.

Authors' recommendations: Potentially effective interventions for the management of obesity are available. However, due to problems with methodological quality research findings indicative of promising interventions should be replicated. The role for the primary health care team needs to be defined and supported by the appropriate resources.
