American Dietetic Association releases 2008 nutrition trends survey
Date:11/6/2008

CHICAGO Increasing numbers of American adults are aware of the importance of nutrition and physical activity and are taking steps to eat a healthy diet and engage in exercise, according to the American Dietetic Association's nationwide consumer opinion survey, Nutrition and You: Trends 2008.

In each ADA survey since 1991, ADA has used respondents' answers to a number of different questions to segment consumers into three groups representing people's overall attitudes toward maintaining a healthy diet and getting regular exercise:

  • I'm Already Doing It: Consumers who feel that maintaining a healthy diet and regular exercise are very important; are concerned about diet, nutrition and overall fitness; and feel they are doing all they can to eat a healthy diet.

  • I Know I Should: Consumers who feel that maintaining a healthy diet and regular exercise are very important, but may not have taken significant actions to do all they can to eat a healthy diet.

  • Don't Bother Me: People who do not feel diet and exercise are very important to them and are the least concerned with their overall nutrition and fitness.

Results of ADA's 2008 survey show the percentage of people in the Don't Bother Me category has dropped substantially, especially from 2002 (32%) to 2008 (19%). "This is the first year the Don't Bother Me group has represented less than one-third of the population," said registered dietitian and American Dietetic Association spokesperson Jeannie Gazzaniga-Moloo. She noted that the segment had been as large as 40 percent in the mid-1990s.

"The steady increases we are seeing among the I'm Already Doing It segment appear to represent movement away from Don't Bother Me, while the I Know I Shoulds remain relatively constant 38% in 2008, and 30% in 2002.

"These trends tell us people are paying more attention to their nutritional and physical activity needs and are increasingly doing what
