Chandigarh 31st May:- GNC, a leading nutrition and supplement brand, today announced its report, which finds a disconnect between perception and reality of health and wellness among Indians. Most Indians view their health as acceptable or excellent (70%) and describe themselves as balanced eaters (69%) – yet their lifestyle habits reveal a contradictory picture with 44% of respondents admitting to rarely or never exercising and being negligent eaters.
Shadab Khan, CEO, GNC India said that while the consequences of Indians’ lifestyle and current choices are widely known, as are the benefits of a balanced diet and exercise, our research finds a clear disconnect between how we view our healthy lifestyles versus our actual behavior. He added further that there is currently a form of ‘collective delusion’ when it comes to health and fitness; the vast majority of Indians believe themselves to be fit and healthy, while their daily behaviour suggests precisely the opposite.
Specifically, while the majority (68%) of survey respondents agree obesity directly or somewhat contributes to a person’s overall health, a proportionate number of respondents admit to eating fast food at least twice a week (47%) – with 15% consuming take-away food daily, and 41% eating fresh fruit only once a week or less. These negative eating habits spike during holidays and festivals, with 36% of respondents admitting to indulging in extra sweets and 26% disrupting their regular eating patterns.
India’s state of health has long been a source of concern, as 72 million Indians are currently diagnosed as diabetic – making the country the diabetes capital of the world according to the International Diabetes Federation. The health delusion illustrated within GNC’s findings shed light to the cause behind this epidemic.
Shadab Khan said that there is a need to educate consumers about the benefits and significance of adequate nutrition, regular sleep and recovery and exercise. He said that according to our research, work colleagues (for 29% of response Shadab Khan dents) and close family (27%) remain the most trusted and influential purveyors of health and lifestyle information. We at GNC believe the conversation needs to shift and become a collaborative effort to create awareness and drive India toward a healthier future.
