It hasn't been a good month for meat-abstainer studies. Not only are aggressive vegans apparently boring everyone into eating meat, but now research has found that many vegetarians give up after a few pints.

The survey of 1789 British vegetarians by VoucherCodesPro found that 37% have eaten meat while drunk and 34% of those admitted to slipping every time they're hammered.

Just 22% answered that they only drop their standards 'rarely'.

Whilst a "flexitarian" diet of reducing your intake of meat for health and environmental reasons is all the rage now, we hope those who are chowing down on a Big Mac every time they have a few tequilas aren't getting on their high horse about meat as soon as they sober up

Don't hold your breath though, as 69% of those surveyed admitted they would keep their secret meat munching hidden from others.

George Charles, author of the study, commented, "I know a few 'vegetarians' who sometimes crave meat, but it seems that a few are giving into their cravings when drunk."

"I think it's important for friends of these 'vegetarians' to support them when drunk and urge them not to eat meat as I'm sure they regret it the next day."

No George, it's important to berate them for their flimsy commitment and wave bacon in front of their hangover.

Just kidding...
