Admit it - we’ve all gone on some kind of diet, even if that’s only involved thinking about it for five minutes before giving up.

And apparently, we’re not alone - according to new research, the average Brit has tried at least three diets this year.

Research commissioned by Zizzi found that the most common diet we’ve tried is vegetarianism (31%), followed by going gluten free (13%) while 10% of us have tried veganism while dining out.

The survey of 2,000 British adults found that younger people were particularly keen on veganism, with 34% of those aged 16 to 34 having experimented with the lifestyle. 40% from this age group had also tried a low-sugar diet.

Interestingly, older generations were less likely to test out different diets; under a third of participants aged 35 to 54 said they ordered a ‘different diet’ meal versus two thirds of 16 to 34 year olds.

It’s not surprising that young people tend to be more experimental with their diets - as anyone who’s survived their teens or twenties will know - but what we’d really like to know is how long these dieting ‘experiments’ last. Do many Britons manage to go the distance with veganism?
