Survey: Americans abandoning low-carb diets

Filed under: Study — Tags: — @ July 15, 2004

A new survey by InsightExpress claims that more than half of all U.S. consumers that have tried low-carb diets have given up, and interest in the lifestyle has plateaued. However, the research firm conduced the survey by polling only 500 Americans.

InsightExpress says it found that less than 10 percent of the U.S. is currently on a low-carb diet, and that of the nearly 80 percent of Americans who have abstained from low-carb diets, fewer than one in five would consider purchasing a low-carb product because of health concerns.
