Insight of the Day: 2 of 3 Americans feel guilty for eating out, survey finds

According to a recent survey conducted by OnePoll in conjunction with Lightlife Foods, two out of three Americans feel guilty for eating out. The survey asked 2,000 Americans about their dining habits and discovered that many people struggle with feelings of guilt when dining at restaurants.

The survey also found that 64% of respondents said they typically feel guilty after eating out, with 76% attributing this guilt to concerns about their health and nutrition. Other reasons for feeling guilty included concerns about the environmental impact of dining out, as well as worries about spending money.

Despite these feelings of guilt, the survey also revealed that Americans eat out an average of four times a week, with 51% of respondents saying they dine out more frequently now than they did five years ago.

Interestingly, the survey found that plant-based options are becoming increasingly popular, with 47% of respondents saying they would like to see more plant-based options on restaurant menus. This aligns with the growing trend of plant-based eating and the increasing availability of plant-based foods at restaurants.

Overall, the survey highlights the complex relationship many Americans have with dining out, as they balance feelings of guilt with the convenience and enjoyment of eating at restaurants.
