The research, by jerky creators Jack Link’s, revealed the pressure is not always welcome, with more than a quarter arguing because of the pushy behaviour.” The research was carried out by Jack Link's - a high-protein, low-calorie snack – as Britons struggle to find satisfying snacks during their January healthy kicks.From today, the brand is helping Britons power through the month by offering a chance to win a month’s supply of Jack Link’s jerky by entering the competition on its Instagram page, @JackLinksUK.When asked what meat they would miss most stripped from their diet, chicken (65 percent) and beef (49 percent) took the top spots, ahead of other popular choices such as pork (27 percent) and lamb (25 percent).

Friends (23 percent) are most likely to be behind the pressure to buy into things like Veganuary and “meat-free Mondays”, as well as partners (23 percent) and parents (23 percent).” “While it’s great to try things like Veganuary, often balancing your intake of meat can provide a happy medium for everyone, while still being able to enjoy your favourite meals and snacks.
