Restrictive dieting puts us down in the dumps

January 5th has been recognised the ‘Hangriest’ day of the year according to new research from WW (formerly Weight Watchers) as nearly half of UK adults reach the middle of the first week of a restrictive new diet.

For the estimated 22.6 million dieting Brits*, the first hump day back will be tough. 26% say they’ll be feeling hungry and irritable by Wednesday as they attempt to stick to highly restrictive New Year diets.

Hanger is set to be at its strongest between 11am and midday.
