Consumer Behavior that related to the topic of weight problem :

Motivation is the driving force within individuals that impels them to action. This driving force is produced by a state of tension, which exists as the result of an unfulfilled need. Individuals strive both consciously and subconsciously to reduce this tension trough selecting goals and subsequent behavior that they anticipate will fulfill their needs and thus relieve them of the tension they feel. Whether gratification is actually achieved depends on the course of action pursued. The specific goals that consumers wish to achieve and the courses of action they take to attain these goals are selected on the basis of their personality characteristic, perceptions, previous learning and experiences and attitudes.

Every individual has needs: Some are innate , others are required. Innate needs are physiological; they include the needs for food, water, air, clothing, shelter and sex. Because they are needed to sustain biological life, the biogenic needs are considered primary needs or motives. Acquired needs are needs that we learn in response to our culture or environment. These may include needs for self-esteem, prestige, affection, power and learning. Because acquired needs are generally psychological, they are considered secondary needs or motives. Motives or needs can have a positive or negative direction.

Goals are the sought-after results of motivated behavior. Individuals get goals on the basis of their personal values, and they select means (or behaviors) that they believe will help them achieve their desire goals
