The sports nutrition market is beefier than ever, and its sibling category, weight management, shows no signs of slimming down. According to NBJ, the market for sports nutrition supplements grew 11.6% in 2012 to reach $4.0 billion in U.S. sales. It's a similar story for weight loss pills—a category still finding solid footing after the ephedra ban in 2004 and the Hydroxycut recall in 2009—with sales growing 10.4% to $1.8 billion in 2012 sales.
