Question by Joy: How much money do Americans spend each year on weight loss products?
I’m looking for a number of good statistics on the market and distribution trends of the weight loss industry in the U.S. and her states. If anyone knows how and where to find these statistics so that I can reference them again, I would very much appreciate it.

The weight loss industry is hard to define and may include all kinds of products and services. So if you don’t know the answer (as I don’t) you collect all kinds of data from the Internet and based on that research I would estimate it is in the $ 40-60 billion range, or about $ 150 for every man, woman and child. Here is what I found:
