Weight Loss In 2017: What’s Changing And What Works

weight loss trends inforgraphicHealth, fitness, and weight loss are industries that have rapidly changed and evolved over the decades — for the better. Fad diets still make their appearances, but for the most part, the focus continues to move toward healthy eating practices and physical fitness.

There is also a greater understanding of weight gain and weight loss, the reasons behind it and the best ways to approach it. For many people, weight gain involves a combination of genetics, lifestyle, stress levels, and emotional factors. Losing larger amounts of weight is absolutely possible, but it often requires a more intensive intervention. The best strategies incorporate a multi-faceted approach that encourages healthy, responsible weight loss. Here are some trends in 2017 to look out for:

Low-Carb Diets

These aren’t new, but they’ve come a long way and are gaining in popularity. Rather than focusing on low-carb packaged and processed foods, there will be an increased emphasis on whole foods high in healthy fats and protein and low in sugar. Cutting sugar and carbs is an incredibly effective way to not only lose weight but also to increase energy and decrease hunger.

Indoor Climbing Gyms

These started as places for climbers to practice their skills when weather or location didn’t permit, but have evolved into a fitness trend that is growing in popularity. The reason it has become so popular is that climbing is a full-body workout that burns tons of calories and is a lot of fun. There is a growing community of supportive people who love the sport and gyms are springing up all over the place.

Outdoor Fitness

Again, outdoor fitness isn’t a new thing, but it is an emerging trend. More and more people are seeing the benefit of getting out of the gym or living room and heading outdoors for hiking, rowing, cross-country skiing, running, climbing, and more. You’ll also see more group classes taken outdoors, such as yoga and strength training.

Weight Loss Supplements

Weight loss supplements have also changed dramatically in the last couple decades, and have become effective, safe and important elements of a healthy weight loss plan. More and more, you’ll see weight loss supplements derived from natural ingredients that help reduce appetite and support weight loss and exercise goals. A good example is Meratrim® from InterHealth. This supplement utilizes natural plant ingredients like Garcinia Mangostana to offer superior results for your health and wellness customers interested in a weight loss supplement.
These are just a few of the trends to look out for in the health, fitness and weight loss industry. Offering your customers a quality weight loss supplement can not only help them but help your business as well.
