Festive Fasting Fears!
LONDON, December 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Herbalife Survey Reveals Shocking Results at Lack of Festive Fun During Christmas Time
According to a Herbalife survey, shock statistics show that 21%* of people still diet on Christmas Day! In fact 73% of people claim to still count the calories of alcohol along with their food intake over the festive period! Â The survey also revealed that everyone asked has undertaken at least one diet in their life, showing that the UK is in fact more weight aware than many make us believe.
Diet and health appear to be bigger concerns than financial worries for 84% of people in 2012. And despite the vast majority believing they are most successful at starting diets in January, most admit that they don't actually feel their best until July! The important thing for people seems to be starting their diets, with 50% of all people apparently not tracking their success or failing to continue them after January despite monitoring what they're eating.
Herbalife's Gavin Aley, UK Country Director, says, "These survey results are really quite alarming as people are clearly still worrying about weight issues over the Christmas period at the one time of year when it's least expected! Herbalife believes that everything in moderation is the key to a happy and healthy lifestyle but fear some people have taken this to an extreme level. A balanced diet over the course of the year will enable you to enjoy a few treats over the festive period!"
