People are often confused and overwhelmed by the variety of dietary, pharmacological, surgical, and exercise approaches to weight loss and weight gain.  This presentation will cover caloric balance and its influence on weight management.  Participants will identify and then calculate the major components of caloric expenditure to see how they can adjust metabolic demand for weight loss/gain goals.
