More Americans are dieting, but obesity is on the rise.
If your attempts to lose weight have failed you're not alone.
A new study from Tulane University finds more Americans are dieting, but obesity is on the rise.
Researchers found the proportion of adults who tried to lose weight jumped from 34% in 1999 to 42% in 2016.
However, obesity rates continued to climb during that time.
The most common weight loss strategies were eating less, exercising, and drinking more water.
