Survey shows that most affected by obesity are not taking steps to lose weight [Infographic]

(BPT) - A 2012 National Health and Wellness Survey of 23,000 people with obesity shows most of those affected by obesity are not taking steps to lose weight. Among those who did take measures, prescription weight loss medications and surgical procedures yielded greater satisfaction versus self-modification methods alone such as diet, exercise and weight management programs. These findings are important because identifying methods that lead to greater satisfaction may help get patients on track for achieving and maintaining long-term weight loss. They also suggest the need for more education on the health effects of obesity and available treatment options.
