diets work different for different people
that seems be the case. The answer must lie in some combination of culture, life style, genetics and what you eat. So to me that sounds like a good place for AI. We can determine genetics. We can determine on a rough basis what people eat by tracking grocery and restaurant purchases. Culture and life style is tougher but likely estimation is possible.
Get volunteers (pay them if needed). Kroger knows all the food I buy. MasterCard where I eat out. My hospital knows my genetic code , weight, height, diseases. Polling can answer some life style questions. IOW most of the data is already there.

This seems a solvable problem. No doubt expensive, but overweight is already very expensive.

It is not going work without genetic profiling but that is a dirty word to some lefties and others.
