Calorie Control Council: Five Key Trends In Weight Loss And Obesity

December 22, 2010: 01:37 PM EST

Small lifestyle changes, along with the elimination of certain foods and beverages, can lead to a healthier, longer life, say health experts from the Calorie Control Council, which represents the low-calorie and reduced-fat food and beverage industry. Reducing portions, controlling calories, increasing physical activity and adding more “color” to the plate (i.e., fruits and vegetables) can all help people avoid unhealthy weight gain. The Council predicts five weight loss and obesity trends for 2011: preventing weight gain by, for example, cutting 100 calories or adding 2,000 steps of physical activity a day; applying updated U.S. dietary guidelines to shape healthier eating patterns; introduction of more “light” products that provide hunger satisfaction – one of the hottest trends in weight management; implementation of corporate wellness programs; and increased calorie consciousness at restaurants.
