Gone are the days when diets were all the rage, as 76% have chosen to avoid fad diets with only 28% trying diets such as Atkins, Keto and the 5:2. As 65% have admitted to eating a diet of meat, fish and vegetables, with a further 10% choosing a vegetarian or flexitarian diet and just 5% opting for either a pescatarian or vegan way of life.
