The Weight Loss Industry Continues to Grow

For individuals looking to lose weight, the number on the scale is what matters most. However, as a business, there are some other important numbers in the weight loss industry that are worth knowing. Take a look at these:


The amount of Americans who are overweight or obese.1


The number of Americans that diet each year.2


The market value of the U.S. weight loss industry.3

What do these statistics mean for you? You’ll benefit from a built-in potential client base of nearly two-thirds of the U.S. population, which is something very few businesses can claim. As a Physicians WEIGHT LOSS Centers® franchisee you’ll have confidence in knowing there exists a lot of opportunity for growth and for helping individuals.

The Future of Staying Fit

An analysis conducted by the National Heart Forum, based on a peer-reviewed model published last year, estimates that 50 percent of Americans are on track to be obese in the next 20 years.

As a Physicians WEIGHT LOSS Centers franchisee, you’ll be given a protected territory consisting of approximately 50,000 people. Based on the research and estimates, nearly 25,000, or one in two, of those people will be potential clients who could benefit from our weight loss programs. That adds up to be an amazing opportunity: the ability to make a living by improving the lives of others.
