Obesity is a problem that concerns all over the world continued to rise in adults, adolescents, and children. The study aims to figure out the effect of health promotion on the behavior of adolescents in managing obesity. This research was done using a quasi-experimental design with adolescents who are obese subjects. A self-Reported questionnaire measured behavior. The data are analyzed using paired-samples t-test or Wilcoxon.
