We spend 30 days a year thinking about what to eat

Hungry Brits spend two hours a day thinking and talking about what to eat and when to eat it – that’s the equivalent of 30 days of every year.

Lunch emerged as the meal we think about most, with 68 percent admitting they are already planning what to eat that day, the moment they wake up.

And 70 percent of those polled by Subway UK said they regularly get ‘hangry’ during the day, which can result in them losing concentration and getting irritable at work.

According to the data 11am is the moment when the average Brit hits the “hangry” wall with almost three quarters of the 1,500 adults surveyed said they need to have ‘pre-lunch’ because they simply can’t wait until midday to eat.

Mays Elansari, Head of Marketing UK & said“Our new research shows that we’re clearly a nation of dedicated lunch lovers from those who plan what they’ll eat in the day the moment they wake up, to those who can’t concentrate unless they’ve satisfied their food craving.”

According to the research, the typical Brit is ravenous as many as four times a day and sends seven texts or pictures to their friends each week, either discussing new restaurants, recipe ideas or pictures of their culinary masterpieces.

On top of that an additional six phone calls are had which are purely dedicated to ‘what do you fancy to eat?’ conversations.

Seven in ten (70 percent) adults said that talking about food and ingredients to their friends and family is one of their favourite things to do.

The study also found that more than three quarters (77 percent) of adults agreed that fresh produce was a must for the perfect meal and three in ten hungry Brits always order a Footlong Sub when visiting Subway.
