Recent Surveys Provide Some Guidance On Effectiveness Of Weight Loss Programs

January 14, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Nutraceuticals World took a look at recent media coverage of diet and weight loss plans, noting that a U.S. News & World Report panel of diet experts gave Weight Watchers its highest rankings in the best diet, best commercial diet and easiest-to-follow categories. A Consumer Reports survey of readership also gave Weight Watchers the highest score in the best commercial weight loss plan category. One interesting finding from the Consumer Reports survey: the “scoring satisfaction” of even the top ranked diet was surpassed by a free smart phone app called MyFitnessPal. The app garnered an overall satisfaction score of 83 and top marks for maintenance, calorie awareness and food variety. Lastly, experts suggest that social media may be an effective way to attract adolescents and teens into weight management programs.
