Monday Was the Least Popular Day for Nearly Every Food and Drink2 of 8
Except for coffee, wine and donuts.
"Hunger" Is Mentioned the Most on Tuesdays3 of 8
Although cyclists outperform runners when it comes to mentioning food and drink in their activity titles, runners are almost 25 percent more likely to complain about being hungry than cyclists. Unsurprisingly, runners aren't often stopping to eat or drink.
Wednesdays Are the Most Popular Banana-Eating Day4 of 8
But when it comes to the work week, Wednesdays take the banana crown. In a single week, Strava athletes munched their way through 619 bananas.
Thursdays Are for Fueling With Peanut Butter5 of 8
Surprisingly, peanut butter isn't that popular on Strava. U.S. athletes love it, but the rest of the world isn't a fan—63 percent of activity title mentions of peanut butter were in the U.S.
Fridays Are All About Beer and Pizza6 of 8
Beer is the most popular item of food or drink on Strava with a whopping 14,972 beers drunk by Strava athletes over the course of the week. Per athlete, Britons drank twice the number of beers as the next highest country, Germany.
Pizza is the second most popular food on Strava, squeezing right in between cake and burgers on the leaderboard. Over 1,000 pizzas are eaten each week on Strava, with Friday taking the pizza consumption K.O.M.
Saturday is the Day for Sweet Treats and Coffee Shop Stops7 of 8
Because of this, donuts, cookies, biscuits and coffee are all at their most popular on a Saturday.
We all know cyclists love coffee. They are more than seven times more likely to mention coffee in their activity title than runners. But when it comes to cookies, runners win hands down. It was the only food on Strava that runners talked about more than cyclists (can you blame 'em?). Strava athletes collectively ate 528 cookies each week, with runners almost 25 percent more likely to indulge in a cookie or biscuit than cyclists.
