A new survey finds that we are obsessed with food, with a third of people ordering food they didn’t actually eat just so they could post it on social!
And while this may sound a little extreme, it’s actually helped people change their eating habits in a more positive way.
27% of people in the survey said that their desire to post better-looking food photos has led them to eat healthier.
Almost 44% of people “frequently” post images of food on their social media feeds.
Over half of people (57%) admit to physically moving and rearranging a dish to get the best photo op, and 59% of people say they’ve stopped friends from digging in to grab a photo first.
More than half (53%) were inspired to try a recipe after seeing it on their feed or timeline. Like my kid, who had me help him make a dish he saw on TIKTOK!
