The growth of obesity in has increased significantly from 15% in 1980 to 46% in
2010 in the US and from 7% to 15.5% in 2010 in the EU. This equates to 150
million adults and 15 million children in the EU expected to be obese by 2010
according the WHO. The US and France have the highest populations of overweight
men, and the US of overweight women.

Of the total number of claims assessed by EFSA, weight management represents
around 4%. About 35% of the 200 weight management claims have been assessed;
92% of these assessed claims have been given a negative opinion by EFSA on
grounds of characterization or of substantiation related to the claim of a cause and
effect relationship.

innovation. Opportunities for weight management plans and diet systems are
becoming apparent as regulations seem to be real less restrictive when exercise
and sensible diet plans with realistic weight loss claims are marketed as part of the
total weight management solution.
