Obesity rates are high in all age groups. Individuals are often unaware of the calorie counts of food and the number of calories that they need each day to maintain their weight. Health care providers must promote calorie awareness in terms that are easy for patients to understand and implement. Awareness and understanding of calories can help empower individuals to make healthful food choices.
