78% Of Americans Admit They Could Benefit From Losing Weight

Just over three-fourths (78 percent) of Americans said they could benefit from losing weight right now, according to a Healthy World Report released today by TeleVox Software, Inc., entitled "The Obesity Epidemic: Unhealthy Habits Result in a Growing Problem for Americans."

Unfortunately, it can't be blamed on the fact that American's aren't trying. The average American has attempted to diet or lose weight nine times in their life, and just 37 percent reported being completely successful with these attempts.

Better interaction between patients and their healthcare providers is the first step in fighting obesity. Sixty-one percent of Americans said they would be interested in and/or happy to receive communications from their doctor with tips on how to manage their weight, and nearly a fourth (24 percent) reported that communications from their doctor between office visits, such as emails, text messages, or phone calls, would help them better manage their overall health. Opening the door for better, and more frequent, communication with doctors is important, as information and support received between visits can help people make lifestyle changes to better manage their weight and overall health.

Study Highlights

• Gain Control: 78 percent of Americans said they could benefit from losing weight right now.

• Coming Up Short: The average American has attempted to diet or lose weight nine times in their life, and just 37 percent reported being completely successful with an attempt to lose weight.

• Seeing Eye to Eye: 90 percent of Americans—and 97 percent of providers—believe that diet and exercise, and not genetics, are the biggest causes of obesity.

• Loosening the Belt: According to the American Medical Association, the U.S. could have obesity rates above 44 percent by 2030 if current trends continue.
