Weight Management, Healthy Habits to Gain Momentum As Economy Improves

With two-thirds of U.S. adults and almost one-third of children and adolescents overweight or obese, a diverse range of consumers are increasingly focused on weight loss and weight maintenance within a broadening context of personal health and lifestyle issues, according to a new report, Weight Management Trends in the U.S., by Packaged Facts. The shift toward weight management and healthy habits as priorities at the forefront of consumer consciousness are expected to gain momentum as the economy improves.
