Let’s face it, a lot of us have been overindulging on certain unhealthy foods while under coronavirus lockdown. Well, it seems there are plenty of people who are pretty much over it.

A new Atkins poll finds:

  • 20% of people say they’ve been eating less healthy while under quarantine.
  • 70% of Americans are ready to take a break from certain foods once the lockdown is over. Those foods include:
    • Fast food (25%)
    • Frozen pizza (22%)
    • Ice cream (16%)
  • Of those who say their diets have gotten worse during lockdown, 37% are ready to return to normal eating.
  • 47% of them want to cut out mindless eating once quarantine is over.
  • 33% are interested in starting a new weight loss program.

But whether they decide to start eating healthy or not once the quarantine ends, it’s pretty obvious folks are ready to go out to eat again.

  • 88% of people say they are looking forward to going to a restaurant post-COVID-19.
  • As for the top restaurants they want to go to:
    • Mexican (18%)
    • Steakhouses (14%)
    • Seafood (13%)
