Over the weekend the Boston Globe reported that American interest in dieting has declined, and in fact, is at its two-decade nadir. According to a study from market research firm the The NPD Group, 26 percent of all women in the United States and 16 percent of men are currently on diets, down from 39 percent of women and 29 percent of men in 1990. Dieticians believe this might be due to new attitudes about health. "The way health is being approached today is to eat healthier foods, not to eat less," says Harry Balzer, who co-wrote the study. Another possible reason for the decline in diets is that there have been no new and exciting weight-loss plans to hit the scene in several years. [Boston Globe]
