For this project, you are asked to review the CBT approaches in regards to obesity in Chapter 5 of your text, pages 88-90, which details the particular risk factors that contribute to obesity (obstacles to overcoming obesity). Next, pick a popular weight-management program that’s currently a “craze” (in my day, Slim Fast, Jenny Craig, P90X). It can be a program that focuses primarily on nutrition, a program that focuses primarily on exercise, or both. Examples might include Noom, intermittent fasting, carb cycling, etc etc.

Write 1-2 paragraphs summarizing the tenets of the program (its philosophy and what it requires of its participants). You may get this directly from the program, but if they have it under lock-and-key, you may need to get this information from second-hard articles, etc, which is OK. After summarizing the program, for each of the headings on obesity on pages 80-90, “grade” your program on how well they address the issue, on a scale of 1-5, as described below, and include 1-2 sentences as to your reasoning for assigning that “grade”.
