We asked that on our Mohr Results Facebook page and got a handful of great answers…
…and we thought we’d give our predictions as well. So here you have it, our thoughts on Nutrition and Fitness Trends in 2010.
1. More focus on prevention, less on reaction. Here’s an example — the greatest tool to "measure" body fat is the mirror. Take a look in it … and if you don’t like what you see, change it. Don’t wait for things to get "out of control."
2. Increase the amount of meals eaten at home. With so much talk about the economy and the effects many are feeling, people are going to be turning more and more to home cookin’
3. Eating local foods. This is simply a continuation of a trend we’ve been seeing over the last year or more. Eat foods as "close" to home as possible. More nutrients, support the local farmer, and the flavor is second to none.
4. More "designer" ingredients/foods. Whether this is good or bad is another question, but we’re surely going to be seeing more and more "specialty" ingredients and/or foods.
5. Increased food fortification. As people continue to look for a quick fix, food companies will continue to "please" by adding specific nutrients to their products that are catered to different genders, health risks, diseases, and so on.
6. More reliance on "Energy" products. As a society, we don’t get nearly enough sleep. Well, the 600+ energy drinks and millions of coffee shops have your answer…their products! There’s no end in sight for the popularity of any of these.
7. More "anti-inflammation" food and supplement products. From antioxidants to fatty acids, phytonutrients to functional foods. Look for this category to heat up in the near future.
8. Body weight training. Who needs a barbell when you have your own body weight? It’s the most simple, least expensive training tool yet — your own body.
9. Keep it simple and "clean." Awareness about different additives, chemicals, and other by products in our foods will have consumers turning more to "clean" foods without any of these!
10. More "green" or "environmentally friendly" foods. keep an eye out for more of these coming down the pipeline.
There you have it — Mohr Results predictions for 2010.
