Type 2 diabetes has both non-modifiable and modifiable risk factors, such as heredity and obesity respectively. Obesity or overweight is a key modifiable risk factor for type 2 diabetes. Therefore, weight control through non-pharmacological interventions such as diet and physical exercise are some of the important measures used to reduce the potential complications and mortality associated with diabetes. Although, there are various policies and guidelines to tackle obesity in the UK, controlling weight gain in clinical practice remains a challenge. This systematic review sought to examine the evidence relating to the barriers preventing people with obesity or overweight and type 2 diabetes from making lifestyle changes, such as increased physical activity and changes to diet as a means of weight control.
