Comparative report on diet study in Vietnam, Indonesia, and Thailand in 2016
Respondents from all three countries; Vietnam, Indonesia, and Thailand, have many things in common on health concern issues.
Despite the similarities, the importance given to scales varies from country to country. In Indonesia (27.6%) and Vietnam (42.3%), women expect to loose weight right after joining diet programs, but in contrast, Thai women believe that loosing weight is not necessary but what’s important is that they must come out of the program healthy.
Besides looking after themselves through diet, women in all three countries also prioritize exercising every week. In Indonesia and Thailand, more than 30.0% work out for 1-2 days per week while in Vietnam, 33.3% work out for at least 3-5 days per week.
