According to the survey, chocolate is the number one food people miss when embarking on a healthy eating and fitness programme, followed by ice-cream and pizza. Such is the lure of forbidden food that 40% of the 1,000 polled said the main reason they do exercise is so they can eat what they want without the worry of piling on the pounds. The survey, commissioned by frozen food retailer, Iceland, also found that cake, bread, and Chinese takeaways are among the foods most likely to tempt us as well as alcohol, fizzy drinks, biscuits and sweets. To lessen the impact of overindulgence, respondents believe that they have to exercise at least six times a month to avoid any undesired effects. According to the poll, Tuesday is the day when respondents feel in control of their healthy eating and are more likely to make sensible food choices. Saturday, on the other hand, is the day most respondents fall back into bad habits. So how to respondents recover from giving into temptation? Four in ten (41%) said they try to get back in the zone by going for a long walk; a quarter said they go for a run or a jog and a fifth said they go swimming to work off the unwanted calories. http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/Chocolate-is-top-food-Brits-miss-when-following-a-healthy-diet-survey-finds-04299 http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/Chocolate-is-top-food-Brits-miss-when-following-a-healthy-diet-survey-finds-04299 60% of Brits admit to ruining the Christmas dinner, reveals poll 60% of Brits admit to ruining the Christmas dinner: Planning to cook Christmas dinner this year?

The research, a collaboration between the Food Standards Agency(FSA) and allergy UK and its Anaphylaxis Campaign found 64 per cent of people aged 16-24 had avoided eating out in the past six months. For those with food intolerances, the figures were slightly lower but still a significant 53 percent. For those that do eat out, 59 percent said that they usually frequent the same restaurants or if they did try a new place they would research the menu beforehand (55 percent). In addition, nine percent of respondents made contact with a venue ahead of their visit to discuss menu options. The research, which polled 2,599 young people, of which half (49 per cent) had a food allergy, 33 per cent an intolerance and 18% both, found 67% knew the legal requirement for restaurants and cafes to provide information on the top 14 allergens. However, despite this, only 14% felt 'extremely confident' asking for information. The same amount felt 'not confident at all'. Fifty-three per cent agreed they felt 'extremely' or 'very' confident that food providers give them the correct allergen information. When it comes to ordering takeaways or food for delivery online, 88% said they had no support, while 51 percent said they always check allergen info before they order and 39% always plump for the same menu choice because they know it is safe for them to eat.

The survey conducted by Organic UK polled 1,500 adults and found 4% had not let peas, broccoli or other green vegetable pass their lips in a month, while 68% said it had been more than a week. Remaining at the bottom of the chart, the least popular green veggie was the sprout. The festival stalwart came in with 15% of the vote, while celery was a close second (13%) followed by the aubergine (10%). Looking into the nation's health, the poll also revealed Brits are also neglecting to have their 5-a-day recommended portions of fruit and vegetables. In terms of trying veggies, 53% said they had never tried okra, while other vegetables shunned are artichoke (37%), celeriac (36%), butternut squash (20%), kale (19%) aubergine (18%) and avocado (15%).

In addition, 16% said they feel 'unhealthy' for much of the time and 13% said the state of their diet caused them unhappiness. The poll also revealed 6% admitted their diet was poor all of the time. When it comes to eating fresh produce, many respondents revealed their diet was often lacking, with the average adult not having eaten a meal with the majority of its items constituting fresh fruit and veg for four days. Carbs (potatoes, pasta and chips) were the main dinner items making up 35% of our meals. http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/Survey-finds-one-in-20-UK-adults-have-not-eaten-green-veg-in-a-month-04237 http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/Survey-finds-one-in-20-UK-adults-have-not-eaten-green-veg-in-a-month-04237
