Losing Weight Is Harder Than Ever

Are you finding it harder to lose weight now than you have in the past? Well, apparently you’re not alone. 

A new survey finds that both people and doctors say it’s harder than ever before to take off the pounds. The poll finds that 62% of U.S. adults and 77% of primary care physicians (PCPs) believe today’s busy modern lifestyles make it more difficult for people to lose weight, with 69% of doctors saying it’s harder now that it was just ten years ago.

As for why, doctors suggest all our tech may be to blame. Turns out, 95% of primary care physicians and 88% of adults say our screen time keeps us from moving around as much as we did in the past. Also to blame are on-demand services like meal delivery, ride sharing and streaming TV, with 80% of adults and 82% of PCPs saying it keeps Americans inactive.

What’s more, 97% of doctors say they are concerned that Americans not taking enough time to plan healthy meals will not only affect their weight, but their family’s weight as well.

  • Overall, the survey finds that 41% of U.S. adults are trying to lose weight, but only 29% are confident they will be able to meet their weight loss goals. And they’re likely doubtful because they’ve seen it before, with 59% saying this isn’t their first attempt at losing weight, with the typical person having tried five times in the past five years.
