Men prefer meat to booze, sports or sex

The majority of men would rather give up booze, cancel their Sky Sports subscription and even give up sex rather than become a vegetarian, according to a recent study.

Conducted by Peperami as part of National Vegetarian Week, the study of 1,000 men found that 62% of men would never even consider giving up meat.

According to the study, 70% of men have some form of meat with every single meal they eat, while 81% reckon they would be lost without meat in their diet.

Over a third of respondents would be happier to delete their Facebook profile than give up their meaty foods and snacks. Those threatening the me or the meat ultimatum may lose out, as some men claimed they would rather break up with their wife or girlfriend, or even stop seeing their best friend or family before even considering cutting out meat.

Bizarrely enough, other things to feature on the list also include doing a naked streak through town, selling their car and giving up the internet.
