Boooo! Then again, tell me something I don’t know. Netflix is making you gain weight and so are Ubers. The Zaluvida Weight Loss Survey found that 88% of Americans moved less in the last few years due to increased screen time, while 80% blame on-demand meal delivery, ride-sharing services, or shopping apps. However, 29% of those surveyed say they use these services to accommodate busy schedules.

“These findings highlight that while the way we live has changed dramatically over the past 10 to 20 years, our approach to weight loss has not evolved sufficiently to address those changes,” said Dr. Frank Greenway. “The results underscore that we need to take a step back and evaluate what weight-loss strategies can best set people up for success given the demands of their daily lives.”
