“Wings, beer and all those football Sunday staples can really take a toll on men’s health and wellness,” said Stephen Mikulak, President of Nutrisystem. “The day following the Big Game is a big diet decision day for men. We see many customers placing orders as they shift their mindset to spring and summer. It’s like they’re starting their New Year’s resolutions all over again.” 

Men’s health and wellness seems top of mind more now than ever before. The survey conducted by OnePoll and commissioned by Nutrisystem also revealed that 43% of men believe that mental and physical health are equally as important as wealth and current lifestyle. If given the choice between getting a promotion at work or losing 20 pounds, 30% would choose to focus on their weight loss goals.

As teams from the West and Midwest battle it out on the field this weekend, the poll also asked men from each region if they believed they could beat their younger selves in a sports game. The results were quite interesting. A whopping 60% of men from the West Coast and 50% of men from the East Coast believe they could take on a younger version of themselves, whereas men from the Midwest (32%), Southeast (38%) and Southwest (32%) weren’t so sure. 

When it comes to getting back on track, 53% of men said having an easy-to-follow plan for healthy eating would help them best achieve their health goals. In addition, 35% said having healthy meals delivered to their door would fuel their success.

“Men are looking for a simple health and wellness solution that lets them eat the foods they know and love and still lose weight,” adds Mikulak. “That’s where Nutrisystem comes in. Nutrisystem for Men® includes big and hearty premium meal options that are packed with protein to control hunger and delivered right to their door.
