Weight Loss Concern at an All-Time Low, shows Survey
A survey that is being conducted since 2006 by the International Food Information Council (IFIC) Foundation, a non profit organization, has found that weight and weight loss concern has become low at present. According to the survey on height and weight that was collected by the online survey, around 34% of the survey respondents were overweight, while 34% of them were obese.
Respondents during the survey have accepted that they do not count calories when they eat and they further agree that they do not try to balance the amount of calories they consume and burn. Marion Nestle, a PhD and MPH, as well as a professor of food studies and public health at New York University, said that if people wish to lose their weight, they should eat less.
The survey also reveals that inactivity levels are on the rise too. Apart from that, people have considered themselves as overweight compared to last year. This gives a conclusion that, for a lot of people, weight loss is on the back burner.
