The article also contends that our senses seem to play a key-role when trying to stick to a diet. A blunt caption under a healthy green salad reads: "Plant-based food doesn't tend to smell - and that's a problem for a lot of people."

Registered nutritionist and cookery writer Rob Hobson explains further:

We seek great tasting flavour, appearance, smell and texture in our food.

But it is clear we reach to unhealthy foods such as the flavour of chocolate and the crunch of crisps to satisfy these needs as the perception of healthy dishes hitting a multi-sensory note is more difficult to achieve.

The article mentions the foods that The Sun's survey found "most likely to end a diet." The following top the list:

Luckily, these favorites are very easy to fit into a low-carb regimen. Check out our recipes and be tempted by dazzling, on-plan creations!
