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'.

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.
