Global Weight Management Market Trends:
In recent years, unhealthy lifestyles and increasing consumption of fast food have led to higher obesity rates. Since being overweight or obese increases the risk of health-related issues, including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, fatty liver and kidney disease, individuals are adopting nutritious diets and workout programs to stay fit and healthy. Along with this, various government and non-profit health organizations are promoting weight management programs, which offer education about healthful eating as well as modifying the person's food intake.
