More than half of all Aussies are likely to snack out on the couch after dinner

You know who you are.

The folks over at Shelby’s Healthy Hedonism have been studying our snacking habits and the results may have you hesitating before reaching for that block of chocolate after dinner.

According to the study, 62 per cent of participants are most likely to indulge in a naughty treat after dinner while watching TV on the couch. In our current climate of binge-watching, it’s no surprise our eating habits tend to follow suit. Other insights from the study found 48 per cent of respondents weren’t super keen on sharing their treats with others. Queenslanders were the worst offenders, with 67 per cent of respondents admitting guilt.

Seeing as 19 per cent of Aussies admit to inhaling a block of chocolate in one sitting, while a further 15 per cent will hide it to avoid having to share, Shelby’s Healthy Hedonism has concocted some post-dinner treats that won’t leave you avoiding the scales. In fact, their range of Dipped & Dusted Almonds and Bars are gluten and refined sugar-free, as well as being low GI and made from all natural ingredients. There are even some vegan-friendly options, too.
