Fifth of Britons will try dairy free diet this year

One in five Britons plan to ditch dairy this year, according to a new poll.

But two-thirds who tried to go vegan in 2017 gave up, the survey found.

Vegan diets will continue to rise in popularity in 2018 as 28 per cent of young adults say they will try giving up cheese and milk this year.

Dairy-free, vegetarian, and low carb diets will be kept up as 50 per cent who started them last year will maintain them.

The new poll shows how many have pledged to change their diet in 2018.

A fifth of us, 19 per cent, claim we will try a dairy free or vegan diet at some point in 2018.

Nearly a third, 30 per cent, who tried to eat healthier last year will maintain their diet and 12 per cent will continue going to the gym.

One in 10, nine per cent, of all adults will aim to become completely vegan in 2018 with a further 10 per cent aiming to go dairy-free.

However, last year, of the five per cent of UK adults who tried a vegan diet for the first time, three in five (58 per cent) gave up.

Britons will also attempt other diets which can be difficult to maintain such as the 6:1 diet, a more extreme form of the 5:2

Over a third, 38 per cent, said it was too difficult to maintain and 21 per cent said they didn’t have the time to prepare suitable meals.

We will also attempt other diets which can be difficult to maintain.

The research, by Blue Diamond Almonds, found one in eight (12 per cent), will try the 6:1 diet, a more extreme form of the 5:2.

To mark the continued popularity of a vegan diet, Blue Diamond Almonds has launched a new range of almond drinks which contain added nutrients for a healthy diet.

Ian Greengrass, managing director at Blue Diamond Europe, said: ‘Following the research, we wanted to create a range of almond drinks that helps people jump on this trend and also provides added nutrition.

‘We’re always looking for innovative new ways to extend the dairy free category.’
