Obesity is a major health problem throughout the world, being one of the leading risk factors for type 2 diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, and premature death (Després and Lemieux, 2006; Ritchie and Connell, 2007). According to the World Health Organization, obesity has tripled over the last 40 years. Thus, recommended methods for weight management have flourished during this time. The fundamental cause for weight gain is an energy imbalance between calories consumed and calories expended. Undeniably, there are a number of factors that can affect caloric expenditure and consumption. However, with strict caloric restriction body mass can be significantly reduced.
