In 2014, among adults with a doctor visit in the past 12 months, approximately half (49.7%) of adults with obesity had a doctor or other health professional talk to them about their diet. Middle-aged (i.e., aged 45–64 years) adults with obesity (54.6%) were more likely than younger (47.1%) or older (47.9%) adults with obesity to have received dietary advice from a health professional. This pattern by age was also found for adults who were not obese; however, adults who were not obese were approximately half as likely as adults with obesity in the same age groups to have received dietary advice from a health professional.
