Most People Are Abandoning Attempts To Be Healthy Until 2019

The holidays aren’t so far away now, and you know what that means: food. So perhaps it’s no surprise many Americans are saying they’re giving up on being healthy until 2019. A new study commissioned by Herbalife Nutrition and conducted by OnePoll finds in a survey of 2,000 Americans, 45 percent say they’re postponing any resolution to eat clean or lose weight until after the festivities. The study found the average person gains six pounds in holiday weight, and just 12 percent will make it through the holidays without any weight gain at all. Also, the average respondent said they will overeat on 13 separate days in the gap between Thanksgiving and the New Year. Dr. John Agwunobi, co-president and chief health and nutrition officer at Herbalife Nutrition, adds, “While resolutions are a great way to kick start a healthy year, a healthy diet is a long-term solution that you’ll want and need to practice steadily – for days, weeks and months – for lasting results.”
