Nearly 25% Of Americans Have Cut Back On Their Meat Consumption In The Last Year: Poll
From smaller portion sizes to swapping steak for cauliflower or a chicken sandwich for a plant-based one, more and more Americans are eating less meat. According to a new Gallup Poll, nearly one in four Americans (23%) reported eating less meat in the past year than they had previously.
The findings are part of a Gallup telephone poll conducted among U.S. adults, between September 16 to September 30, 2019. But while the survey found some Americans are cutting back on their meat consumption, the percentage of Americans that consider themselves vegetarian (5%) is, about the same as it has been for the past 20 years.
