Yup. In a declaration that no male would ever make, half of all women would reportedly give up sex for a full year if it meant they could be skinny. Are we really suffering from that much of a self-image crisis? Guess so.
Fitness magazine asked 2,400 women if they would sacrifice a full year of sex to be skinny — and 51 percent said yes.
That was just one of the surprising results of the magazine’s new diet survey – a survey that underscored the serious self-esteem and body issues many women have today.
Other findings: 43 percent of the women in the study have skipped meals regularly to lose weight, 39 percent have taken diet pills, and 40 percent went on their first diet, not only in high school, but possibly in middle school.
I’m sure it has nothing to do with the kinds of women that we plaster all over this site for your viewing pleasure. Though if I could look like one of them (if I were a girl) I would probably give up sex for a year too.
