Where do consumers place the blame for obesity?
How do today' s consumers define obesity?
Have these views changed over the past 7 years?
For food companies, marketers, health care providers and policy makers
understanding the culture of food and occasions for eating is the key to
finding effective solutions that affect real change in eating behaviors. With
more than 190 million American consumers overweight or obese and the obesity
rate among children tripling in the last 30 years, consumers' decisions about
what, when and where to eat have significant implications across every aspect
of the food manufacturing, food service, marketing and retailing market place.

intersections of culture of food, eating behaviors and consumer perceptions of
healthy eating and weight management. This report goes beyond merely
investigating consumers' attitudes on weight management and healthy eating. It
