Eating and drinking habits of young London-based Irish men: a qualitative study.
This item is available in the Library Catalogue
This qualitative study is based on interviews with young Irish men living in London about their diets and their views on healthy eating. The data were analysed using combined thematic and discourse analysis. Interviewees gave various reasons for not adopting healthy eating habits, including the cost of healthy foods, their lack of time and ability to cook, and their prioritisation of drinking. Views about the status of different foods also affected their eating habits: they considered red meat, for instance, as ‘masculine’, while lighter foods associated with healthy diets were considered ‘feminine’.
