While malnutrition and underweight were historically primary issues, advancements in treatment have led to overweight and obesity becoming new challenges. Body composition, focusing on fat mass and fat-free mass, is now crucial for clinical outcomes. They also address the hurdles of physical activity, the psychological effects of weight gain, and the need to combat weight bias.
