The average Brit now spends £1300 a year on takeaways and buys 12 takeaways a month



Research published in the Daily Mail reveals the average person in the UK eats 12 takeaway meals a month and spends £1320 a year on fast food.

Even scarier is the revelation that people in my age bracket spend double the national average; that’s a whopping £2600 a year on fatty food.

Thankfully I think I fall below this average – at the moment at least – the post-Christmas healthy eating plan has lasted considerably longer than usual. However while at university I could easily match this statistic; the cycle of a takeaway after a night out and maybe one the next day because you were too lazy to cook anything happened far too often.

Then there were the ‘let’s be sensible and not go out – we’ll have a night in front of the telly with a takeaway’ evenings, that accompanied our X Factor viewing sessions. Thankfully, this cycle has been broken by graduate full time employment, something both my wallet and my waistline are very grateful for. The purveyors of fast food in Sheffield probably miss me very much though.

Another statistic the newspaper announced was that a Chinese takeaway is now our number one choice, followed by an Indian in second and fish and chips in third. Surely nothing beats the Great British fish and chips?
