A lot of people probably made a New Years resolution to lose weight this year, but a new poll suggests most folks really don’t know how to go about it
A survey by Jenny Craig finds that two thirds of people are currently looking to lose weight. And while 92% of folks say they know the right foods to eat, more than half are still making daily bad food choices.
Surprisingly, it looks like men are more interested in getting help losing weight than women, with more men open to using a weight loss program to lose weight in the New Year (75% vs. 43%). And one thing that may be holding people back from losing is support, with only 46% of people saying they have adequate support to help them lose weight, and 31% saying they don’t get the support they need.
Interestingly, in what is an obvious dig at Jenny Craig competitor WW, a.k.a. Weight Watchers, whose new slogan is “wellness that works,” the survey finds that 42% of people are unsure of what wellness means, with 51% of people believing it’s simply a buzzword. What’s more, 87% of people believe physical wellness is the most important thing to obtain personal wellness, with emotional wellness close behind (83%).
