Health was the top motivator for diet changes, with 7 in 10 saying they are now adopting these changes for longer term

 

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA – Media OutReach – 11 December 2020 – Premier global nutrition company, Herbalife Nutrition, today released findings from the 2020 Diet Decisions Survey, which revealed that Asia Pacific consumers are eating better and exercising more, with 58% believing that they will emerge healthier in the new normal. The survey, which polled 8,000 consumers in eight Asia Pacific markets, including Australia, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, South Korea, Taiwan and Vietnam, also shed light into the motivations behind the consumers’ recent dietary and lifestyle changes, with the aim of inspiring more people to adopt better nutrition and lifestyle habits to improve their overall well-being now and into the future.

 

“There is always room to improve your lifestyle, especially when those changes can lead to lasting results in your personal well-being,” said Stephen Conchie, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Asia Pacific, Herbalife Nutrition. “From the survey, we observed that more individuals are eating fruit, vegetables and other plant-based foods, and consuming less meat. In fact, more consumers want to eat nutrient-dense, plant-based proteins but don’t know where to start. This reveals a need for wider public nutrition education to help consumers make better decisions in their daily diets.”

“We can create a conducive environment for consumers through easy-to-follow meal plans, readily-available health and wellness coaching and convenient meal alternatives. This way, Herbalife Nutrition can enable more people to have access to healthier meal options and accurate nutrition information, forming healthier, active lifestyle habits in the longer term,” added Stephen.

Positive health impact, sustained dietary changes expected  

When it comes to the impact of the dietary changes, a large majority of consumers – 83% – have noticed a positive difference in their health. In addition, 68% believed that their dietary changes this year have lasted longer compared to a different time. As a result, 82% plan to keep the dietary changes for the foreseeable future.
