We all know that maintaining a busy work life and healthy lifestyle is challenging. At GutCheck, we conducted a three day Instant Research Community with over 35 respondents and probed for their insights on activities, brands and even celebrities that they pay attention to when thinking about living a healthy lifestyle. Here are a couple of highlights from the community members:
* Respondents identified living a healthy lifestyle with many different brands. In fact they mentioned nearly 50 national and regional brands collectively. The challenge is any agreement on brands that do represent maintaining a healthy lifestyle consistently. Kashi was the one brand that rose above the clutter, with 42% of respondents mentioning it specifically. The next mentioned brand was Whole Foods with only 18%.
* Even those who actively try to live a healthy lifestyle find barriers to do so. A third of respondents say that they frequently run out of time. In addition, 21% said that their other family members kept them from keeping their health and wellness goals (can be spouse, children or older parents — but children were mentioned most often). Another significant factor was the actual expense of staying healthy — most notably the price of organic food.
