Measuring up: The medical profession's prescription for the nation's obesity crisis

This report from the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges presents 10 key recommendations – an ‘action plan’ – of steps that the organisation believes must be taken to make real inroads into tackling the obesity crisis in the UK.

The recommendations fall into three areas:

  • actions to be taken by the healthcare professions
  • changing the ‘obesogenic’ environment
  • making the healthy choice the easy choice.
