Tampa, FL (PRWEB) February 05, 2014

Marketdata Enterprises is a 35-year old market research firm that has tracked the U.S. weight loss market and published in-depth studies about it and all its market segments since 1989. It has just released a new report: The U.S. Weight Loss Market: 2014 Status Report & Forecast.

The U.S. weight loss market in 2013 was estimated to contract by 1.8% to $ 60.5 billion. Sales of diet soft drinks, artificial sweeteners and diet dinner entrees fell significantly and most other market segments were flat. This was due to the weak economy and poor job growth, coupled with a trend away from highly processed foods and non-natural ingredients. A lack of compelling new weight loss programs by the leaders didnt help either, according to Research Director, John LaRosa.

Major Findings:

The U.S. weight loss market is now almost evenly split in dollar terms between weight loss products and services — products account for an estimated 49.3% of the total in 2013 ($ 29.8 billion), and services account for 50.7% ($ 30.7 billion). The total market value fell 1.2% last year to $ 60.5 billion and is expected to grow only 1.2% this year.

83% of dieting consumers favor do-it-yourself weight loss programs accessed from home (online or by phone) or the use of diet books or celebrity diet plans (fad diets). This is the highest historical share in 20+ years. This rate remained above 80% in 2013.

Weight loss and fitness apps will lose momentum in 2014, as dieters recognize that these devices can do only so much to motivate them and keep them on track. Some market leaders have been blaming these apps for declining sales, but this is not the only reason. Poor execution, a lack of customized programs, and not serving untapped niche markets are just as important factors.

Retail sales of non-prescription diet pills are down. Prescription obesity drug sales are flat, and have been for years now. The new entrants Qsymia and Belviq have not produced significant weight loss and sales have been paltry since their introduction in 2013.

The one diet product exception seems to be meal replacements (shakes, bars), much of which is sold via MLM (multi-level marketing) channels. Herbalife and Visalus have achieved success here, along with Medifast.

Medical weight loss programs of all kinds are growing, especially small to mid-sized local and regional chains. More physicians are adding weight loss to their practices, and they are being encouraged by the government to get more active in combating obesity.

Herbalife is now the #2 weight loss company in the World, by sales, with estimated North American sales of weight loss products of $ 591 million in 2013 (meal replacements), second only to Weight Watchers and larger than both Jenny Craig and NutriSystem.

Sales of meal replacements grew about 6% to $ 1.35 billion in 2013, largely on the strength of multi-level marketing distribution. Conversely, OTC diet pills sales fell 3.7% to $ 1.45 billion.

Revenues of commercial chains slid 4.5% last year, to $ 3.34 billion. The best prospects for growth for the large commercial chains will be to make inroads in the worksite wellness market and underserved niches (overweight Blacks, Hispanics, teens, college students), and to cement new partnerships with large retailers and female-oriented companies such as Mary Kay, Tupperware, and AVON.

The retail weight loss market will get more crowded this year. The CVS drugstore chain just added its own DASH Diet program to its 600+ mini-clinics. Can Walgreens, Rite Aid and others be far behind? NutriSystem already sells its jump start program via 3,700 Walmart stores. If Walmart decides to develop its own weight loss plan and offer it in-store via its own healthcare mini-clinics, this would represent a major new retail competitor.

Worksite weight loss programs is an $ 859 million market segment, growing 13% per year. They should become more popular under the Affordable care Act.

Dieters are heavier than ever, having put on significant weight during the recession. The combination of increased stress levels and a shift to more comfort food and cheaper fast food resulted in the weight gain. Marketdatas quarterly reports find that the most common weight class, for those starting a diet, is 150-174 lbs., followed closely by those weighing 175-199 lbs.

Many weight loss companies dont yet realize that Obamacare can be a major boost to their revenues. There is a $ 1,625 yearly preventive care benefit, where insurers must cover the cost of up to 14 counseling sessions, an MD exam and lab tests, by a qualified weight loss professional (i.e. Nurse practitioner, MD, Physicians Assistant). Most consumers dont realize this either. This shifts the advantage to medically supervised programs. As well, most consumers dont know that they can take an IRS tax credit for weight loss programs, subject to certain conditions. As a result, programs become a lot more affordable, says John LaRosa.


The U.S. Weight Loss Market: 2014 Status Report & Forecast, published in Feb. 2014, is a 54-page analysis, an off-the-shelf study. The price is $ 595. The report covers: 2013 market performance, recent competitor developments and top management turnover, new programs for the 2014 diet season, the coming paradigm shift from diet products to diet services, dieter demographics/trends, why the Affordable Care Act can be profitable for companies heavy on counseling, CVS drugstore chain enters market with mini-clinic program, threats posed by Walmart and weight loss & fitness apps, bestselling diet books, reasons why market growth is slow why diet companies must execute better, customize their programs, and form new retail partnerships.

Individual Status Reports for the 10 market segments (2013 dollar value, 2014 forecasts) diet soft drinks, artificial sweeteners, health clubs, commercial weight loss chains, OTC meal replacements and diet pills, diet websites & apps, medical programs (weight loss surgery, MDs, hospitals/clinic programs, Rx diet drugs, bariatrician plans, VLCD programs), low-calorie dinner entrees, diet books, and exercise DVDs.

(PRWEB UK) 23 August 2013

According to an article published by the Express on August 13, research has indicated that four in ten cancers could be prevented by changing your diet.

A report released by the World Health Organisation has indicated statistics into the relationship between obesity and cancer, stating that being overweight increases the risk of breast cancer after the menopause, colorectal and pancreatic cancers. The report indicates that 18% of cancer diagnoses are related to obesity or being overweight. The organisation also states that obesity and being overweight is one of the most avoidable causes of cancer.

The article published by the Express questions whether losing weight will normalise your risk of cancer or if there would be remaining risk, but states that losing weight is one way of preventing an increase of risk of cancer, as well as the risk of diabetes and heart disease.

Senior health information officer for Cancer Research UK, Yinka Ebo, told the Express that:

Some cancers are linked to our genes, age or environment, factors we cant change. Many are linked to the way we live.

Many people have found that complementary therapies such as hypnotherapy are an effective method of losing weight. The National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) connects members of the general public with professional, skilled hypnotists throughout the UK who are qualified to help with a wide range of issues, including weight loss. A representative for the company said:

Sessions of hypnotherapy focus on the reasons for overeating, rather than drastically reducing calorie intake. Hypnotherapy sessions also help you to develop techniques to manage your diet as well as increasing your motivation for exercise.

NCH represents over 1800 hypnotherapy professionals within the UK and is committed to ensuring the highest possible professional standards amongst our members. Those looking for help with smoking, weight, anxiety, panic attacks, habits and phobias may be helped by local NCH accredited therapists, look for the NCH seal of approval on their websites. As one of the largest registers of independent Hypnotherapists, the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) is actively involved with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and strives to develop standards for the benefit of the profession, now and into the future.

Related Posts: Gluten Free Diet Helps Resolve Elevated Triglycerides and Helps with Weight Loss One of the most common questions I get asked is — Does a gluten free diet help with weight loss? My reply is usually this: It depends on the person. For some people going gluten free helps with weight loss, for others, going gluten free helps them gain weight. You see, everyone is affected by gluten differently. Much the same as the following analogy — If you give 1000 people the same medication, will they all have the same side effects? No. People can have different reactions to the exact same substance. Gluten is no different. Some people have issues with hormones, others develop celiac disease, some have migraines or nerve damage… The list goes on and on. Read this article on the gluten spectrumto learn more on this. Does a Gluten Free Diet Help Lower Triglycerides? I recently had a patient who put this question to the challenge. After a functional medicine approach to her treatment, she was able to normalize her triglycerides, improve her energy levels, lose 20 pounds, lower blood pressure, and avoid the need for life long medications. All this in less than 6 months time. The bigger question here is why don’t all doctors take this approach to improving their patient’s health? In this case, a gluten free diet combined with other food modifications and nutritional applications probably saved this women from years of chronic degenerative heart disease, obesity
