Abstract

 

The theoretical strategy for overweight and obesity, which consist of many factors, is reviewed. As the main theoretical strategy, many intervention programs are known as theory framework; examples of theory framework selection, theory framework with overweigh and obesity intervention programs, theory framework to practice example, theory with client, theory with practitioners, theory with disciplines, fit the theory for behavior change, selection theory framework, theory with barriers, theory framework with hypotheses, theory with barriers and theory framework with hypotheses. Theory of framework can apply overweight and obesity intervention across health domains to explore whether efficacy can apply the associated types of interventions with the target populations.
