AbstractThe environment plays a crucial role in the development of obesity. Obesity rates continue to escalate, bringing into question the efficacy of prevention, intervention, and treatment efforts. This paper identifies the previous research examining obesogenic environmental factors and sets out to determine whether physical, social, cultural, and economic environmental factors are associated with obesogenic dietary behaviors. The study searched five databases for full-text English articles, of which 103 were included in the literature review. The selection was based on keywords searching, peer-reviewed publications, stated research methodology, strategic analysis, and substantial increments in knowledge. One of the results showed an increasing pace of urbanization, media influence, and advertising emphasis on unhealthy food are associated with obesogenic dietary behavior. The discussion focuses on the most susceptible factors for obesity and the implications for future research in communities with a dense population. The objective of addressing the obesity epidemic is to employ strategies to curtail sugar use, restrict marketing efforts of unhealthy food, and increase the availability of healthy food.
