1/3 Of Americans Are Now Flexitarians: Study (Video)


A new study conducted by OnePoll in conjunction with So Delicious Dairy Free found that 31 percent of Americans say they follow the “flexitarian diet”. Buzz60’s Lindsey Granger explains:

One in three Americans now considers themselves a “flexitarian,” according to new research.

A new study into the diet choices of 2,000 Americans found 38 percent admit to following more than one type of dietary lifestyle.

And a flexitarian diet – defined as someone who does not adhere to one specific eating style and may combine plant-based and meat-based diets – is now adopted by 31 percent of those studied.

And another 13 percent now subscribe to a specific eating lifestyle such as veganism, vegetarianism or paleo.

A study conducted by OnePoll, in conjunction with So Delicious Dairy Free, examined the eating habits of 2,000 Americans and found that nearly three in five (59 percent) eat plant-based meals at least once a day.

The research, launched ahead of World Vegan Day (November 1st), saw the average American studied flexes their culinary techniques by eating four meat-free meals a week.

Over half (52 percent) of Americans are currently trying to incorporate more plant-based meals into their daily lives.

But that’s not all. Americans are open to the idea of eating more plant-based meals – in fact, 18 percent have tried a vegetarian diet and five percent have tried a vegan diet.
