U.S. Weight Loss Market Worth $60.9 Billion
Friday, October 07, 2016
Headlines for an article I read recently. The article discussed the weight loss market and how best to profit from us overweight folks.
Imagine if there were an alcoholics recovery market. Or, a market for those who struggle with over spending. Yes, that is perfect, make money off of people who are feeling hopeless, or out of control!
I think I am done contributing to the weight loss market. I am never going to buy myself thin. I have never needed any outside resources, besides those that I possess already in order to lose weight. I have what it takes, and I am really "fed up" (no pun intended) with all of the feelings that come with being over weight. Not just my own feelings that I deal with, but the feelings of lots of other "well meaning" people who find my body size to be such an issue that they feel it is up for public discussion.
It is no wonder weight loss is such big business. I know for myself I have felt the overwhelming desperation to just be thin, RIGHT NOW, so I did not have to endure, this that or whatever emotional beating I was fearing. That feeling of desperation has led me to try EVERY diet there is. One thing I have found, for me personally, is counting calories works. I have done it many times. I have small purse size calorie books and I can just write down my calories in a journal like I used to do. I need nothing else really, in order to be very successful.
So, I guess the weight loss market, or weight loss industry as this research article also called it, will have to continue on without my contributions.
