It comes and goes in waves. You can usually tell when there are big "things" coming up, because people see or hear something on TV. I think the reason it's on an uptick right now is that it's getting warmer, and people are starting to think about beaches, summers, and bikinis. Marketers know that, so they're hitting TV and magazines hard with sexy ads, paying off Dr. Oz, and positioning themselves to take advantage of the summer rush. There's always a similar burst of activity in the first weeks of January as people make (and start breaking) New Year's resolutions.
Here, we get people who want to lose weight, and lose it fast, because bikini season is coming. It'll taper off later. :) And those who want get-thin-quick fixes will gradually disappear. Unfortunately.

Writer, mother, wife, and breadwinner. I love to run, but running doesn't love me, so I'm switching to my low-impact bike.
