We all want to lose weight and look great 100% of the time. The increase in obesity rates has made losing weight even more important. While Lap ban and gastric bypass surgery have grown in popularity, other women are looking for natural ways to shed the fat. The question is How Far Would You Go To Lose Weight???? This survey conducted by Slim Fast is a bit shocking. See what they found and if it applies to you!
The survey was conducted across the United States and included 1,000 women.
- Six out of 10 women (60 percent) would have sex everyday if it helped them keep their weight under control.
- 45% of women would never have another glass of wine (alcohol) if it meant they would never gain another pound, 35 % coffee, and 29% chocolate.
- The survey changes when it comes to friends. When asked if they would give up their best friend to never gain another pound, only 5% said they would never talk to their friend again.
- When asked what scenario created the most inspiration to slim down, 40% said getting into a bathing suit, 33% said a New Years’ resolution, 25% said wedding, and 20% said a class reunion.
