What Women Do to Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle*
Drink more water (80%)
Eat more fruits and vegetables (70%)
Read nutritional labels (49%)
Avoid foods that are high in fat (47%)
Make a conscious effort to lower calorie intake (44%)
Watch my sugar intake (44%)
Exercise at least three times a week (43%)
Found this via Starling Fitness and I have to agree that it’s a shame that women are only willing to do the easy things. Too bad research has debunked the health values of drinking all that water.
Another tidbit from the research:
Top 10 Health Concerns (across all generations)
1. Diet/weight control (56%)
2. Eating well/nutrition (36%)
3. Allergies (27%)
4. Aging process (26%)
5. Mental health (25%)
6. Arthritis (24%)
7. Cancer (23%)
8. Cardiovascular/heart health (20%)
9. Diabetes (18%)
10. Menopause (18%)
Is it really such a mystery that many problems with #1 can be solved with #2? I mean, really, is the outlook so warped that these ended up as two categories in this survey? I boggle.
Wonder if a similar survey has been done for men, and whether they’re more sensible.
