#FitnessPH - 8 in 10 Consumers Expect to Gain Weight at The End of The Year – Herbalife Nutrition Survey

Herbalife Nutrition, a leading global nutrition company, today unveiled the results of its 2022 Asia Pacific Holiday Eating Survey, which showed that 80% of customers anticipated gaining weight over the holiday season because they were less healthy than usual. Due to stress, a lack of time, and the temptation of holiday meals, the respondents acknowledged that they did not get enough sleep or maintained a regular sleep routine, and they ate unbalanced meals.

The survey also revealed that 32% of customers are still carrying the extra weight they put on at the conclusion of the previous year. Despite this, respondents still intend to lead unhealthy lifestyles this year; in fact, five out of ten respondents (51%) are using the holiday season as a motivation to postpone eating healthily.

“Many people overeat during holiday family and friend gatherings, but by consuming some protein rich snacks before the party, you won’t feel as hungry and therefore reduce the chances of overeating,” said Dr. Kent Bradley, Chief Health and Nutrition Officer at Herbalife Nutrition. “As our enjoyment of food is often in the first bite, it's best to enjoy the taste with just a small bite and avoid the discomfort of overeating this holiday.”

The average consumer expects to gain two kilograms before 2023 — on top of any weight they’re still carrying around from last year.

When it comes to eating habits, some respondents take this to a more extreme level than others: 38% have eaten more than one dessert at a meal, 37% have eaten more than three meals in a day, and 34% admit eating more than one of the same meals in a day (for example, two dinners). 

While many are planning to end 2022 on an unhealthy streak — they’re planning to start 2023 with a clean slate. 

The majority (58%) of those surveyed said they are making New Year’s resolutions, most of which are related to health. The top resolutions were:

Eating healthier (59%)

Saving money (57%)

Exercising more (56%)

Improving work-life balance (53%)

Focusing on self-care (50%)

“The New Year is an excellent time to get back on track with a renewed commitment to year-round health, and although it’s common to gain weight at the end of the year, the most successful New Year's health resolutions combine nutritious balanced diets and exercise, along with specific and attainable goals,” added Bradley.
