With summer upon us, many Vancouverites will be considering crash dieting to look good this summer – with 42% having tried it before and 15% of respondents saying they are tempted. An additional 45% admit to taking weight-loss supplements to shed the pounds.
Of the 67% of Vancouverites planning to get fit just for the summer months, 30% admitted they are shaping up to lose weight for the beach and to feel good in their summer wardrobe.

Long-term weight-loss solutions
According to fitness expert, nutritionist and CEO of SD Pharmaceuticals, Don Gauvreau: “There are many fad diets out there claiming to give instant results when it comes to weight loss but, ultimately, you need to go back to the basics – a balanced health and fitness regimen. Through healthy eating and regular exercise, people see a difference in how they feel and look. Vancouver is known for being an active city so I’m surprised that a lot of people are still relying on quick fixes to look good. We should know better and adjust our habits accordingly!”
