Herbalife Nutrition, a global nutrition company, undertook a survey on balanced nutrition in 12 markets across Asia Pacific and surveyed more than 6,000 consumers to understand eating habits, exercise and lifestyle habits among them.

The survey aimed at providing deeper insights into the motivation for adopting balanced nutrition and an active lifestyle and the challenges they face in doing so.

According to Herbalife, balanced nutrition is a holistic concept that recommends 40 per cent carbohydrates, 30 per cent protein and 30 per cent fats in a person’s daily intake, along with proper hydration and regular physical activity to enable the adequate supply of nutrients to support core body functions.

Ajay Khanna, vice-president and country head, Herbalife International India Pvt Ltd, said, “As a global nutrition company, Herbalife Nutrition is committed to helping consumers adopt balanced nutrition habits, so that they can have a long-term positive impact on their lives.”

“A healthy active lifestyle is a way to proactively combat the rising trend of public health issues such as obesity, diabetes and other lifestyle-related illnesses,” he added.

“We have specially conducted the balanced nutrition survey for Asia Pacific consumers to raise awareness about the importance of balanced nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices,” Khanna stated.

The survey covered a cross-section of population, including millennials, non-millennials, men and women, and working and non-working population.

Through this survey, Herbalife seeks to inspire consumers to adopt a healthier lifestyle and reinforce its impact on long-term health and well-being.

According to survey findings, 71 per cent of consumers are eating less than half of the recommended serving of fruits and vegetables, more than half do not drink enough water, and more than half do not get enough exercise.
