Drunk Nights Out Cause Over A Third Of Vegetarians To Eat Meat

Drinking alcohol may lower a person's inhibitions, including their diet.

The U.K.'s deal-oriented website Voucher Codes Pro conducted a survey of nearly 1,800 self-reported vegetarians, and 37 percent admitted to eating meat when they get drunk.

Of this group, 34 percent made this a regular habit, responding that they eat meat every time they're out and under the influence.

The most popular food to indulge in is kebabs, capturing 39 percent of these meat-eating vegetarians; burgers were second, claiming 34 percent.

Bacon, fried chicken, and pork sausages rounded out the top five foods most likely to be eaten during these cheat meals.

Interestingly, much of this indulgence happened in secret with nearly 70 percent not telling anyone about their inebriated meat eating.

As a result of these findings, the website's founder encourages friends of vegetarians to help them abstain from meat when drunk.

Despite the behaviors of this group, 63 percent of the vegetarians surveyed claimed to stick to their diet regardless of alcohol consumption.
