To Request that the Diet Industry Publicly Advertise It's Research in their Websites and Publication Material sign now

 

 

It is clear that people who experience disordered eating, INCLUDING Overweight and Obesity are not having our needs fully met, if at all!

The Diet Industry is taking full advantage and capitalising on this unmet need.

There is mounting research that evidences the need for a Psychological Intervention for Overeating / Obesity. However, this Intervention is almost non existent to people who are overweight / obese - WHY? 

I believe that The Diet Industry are essentially enabling people to develop or maintain disordered eating in the hope we will keep going back to these diets, making them a substantial profit. This petition is to request that the Diet Industry conduct research, produce results and advertise them publicly - in particular on their websites and within their publications so that people have the opportunity to make a more informed decision about the diet. My question is why doesn't the Diet Industry advertise their research? Have they conducted any? I believe we, the public has a right to this information.

It is my belief that if we don’t  turn our attention from Diets and Healthy Eating Campaigns with the message 'Eat Less, Exercise More' to a deeper psychological and emotional understanding of our eating, then disordered eating will not only continue, but increase and consequently the Diet Industry's profit will increase.

By Requesting that the Diet Industry research their diets and publicly advertise their findings, I believe, the ineffectiveness of these diets will be revealed - leading to the approach of a deeper psychological understanding of disordered eating being acknowledged, accepted and used by the wider population.
