article imageOne in three vegetarians admits to eating meat while drunk

By Adrian Peel     Oct 9, 2015 in Food
A recent study undertaken in the UK suggests that meat consumption among inebriated vegetarians is more common than one might think.
According to the findings of a survey conduced by the website VoucherCodesPro, 37 percent of 1,789 "vegetarians" questioned revealed they had eaten meat after excessive drinking on a night out, meaning that while that number may be alarming to some, the majority of non-meat eaters — 63 percent — appear to stick to their principles, or to their dietary requirements, no matter how much they've had to drink.
As reported by Fox News, those who do "fall off the wagon" do so regularly, with 34 percent saying they turn to meat whenever they've had one too many in a bar or club. 26 percent replied that they eat meat fairly often when in a weakened, alcohol-induced state, 22 percent said "rarely" and 18 percent answered "occasionally."
Unsurprisingly, for anyone who's ever been out on the town anywhere in the UK, the "forbidden fruit" of choice was kebab meat, followed by hamburgers, bacon, fried chicken and pork sausages. Of those surveyed, many were too embarrassed to admit to their "crime" — 69 percent claiming they had never told anyone their secret.
When asked how much they typically spend on post-night out food, the average amount, based on all the responses given, was £4.80.
Vegetarians enjoying the pleasures of animal flesh is not an exclusively British phenomenon, however, as the results from a 2014 survey carried out in the US found that 84 percent of American vegetarians will start eating meat again at some point.
