People all over the world might be into the craze of getting fit and dieting and all that shit but us Indians; we will only go so far when it comes to giving up food!
According to a survey by Ipsos, 77% of Indians would choose food if they were given the choice between eating good food and being thin.
Ipsos conducted the survey with around 1,000 urban Indians last year. The company emphasised that the sample couldn't be extrapolated to all Indians but it did represent a more affluent, connected population representing an important and emerging 'middle class'.
The study revealed that eating well was given more importance by the middle class and dieting had limited traction with them.
According to the report by Quartz, about 74% of the respondents were happy with their current weight.
Meanwhile, 57% of them said that they had tried cutting calories in order to lose some weight.
More importantly, 59% of them believed that most diet plans ultimately failed.
According to the survey, even when Indians watch their weight, they do it because of their love for food. 67% of respondents said that the only reason behind them exercising was so that they could eat whatever they like.
We Indians do love our food. They didn't have to do a survey to prove that!
