Survey: Women Value Healthy Eating As Top Priority


Abe’s Market, the leading better-living retailer, released survey results today entitled “would you rather,” shedding light on women’s priorities when it comes to eating healthy. The survey, which was conducted between May 1416 via Google surveys asked a sample of 1,500 women throughout the United States about what their priorities are when it comes to eating healthyhad some surprising results:

  • Sixty-one percent of women said “they would rather have a healthy body than a healthy relationship”;
  • Seventy percent of women said “they would rather their kids eat healthy than get good grades”;
  • Sixty percent of women said “they would rather eat healthy than have a healthy financial savings";
  • Eighty-three percent of women said “they would rather have a healthy body than have a great wardrobe”; and
  • Fifty-four percent said they “would rather eat healthy than have prayer in their lives.”

“These are some surprising results on the importance of eating healthy for women,” said Jennifer Grayson, Abe’s Market contributing editor. “Today’s woman knows the importance of health – and apparently many value good eating more than good grades and good relationships. While we are aware of the tremendous growth of “healthy eating”, these survey results were amazing. Women are increasingly making a having a healthy body their top priority over what we would traditionally think are their lifestyle milestones.“

This survey is part of a campaign by Abe’s Market, Dishing Dirty, (, a provocative look at the lives of women and the choices they are making as it pertains to their health. For more information about Dishing Dirty and the “Would you Rather” survey visit
