Survey: Women think about food more than SEX, as a quarter believe diets are more important than their relationships
A survey of 1,290 female dieters in the UK by weight-loss company Atkins revealed that women put more effort into dieting than into their relationships, which leads them to think more about food than sex.
Women put more effort into dieting than into their relationships, a new survey has found, which leads them to think more about food than sex.
And 10 per cent of those surveyed revealed they would feel guiltier straying from their diet, than being unfaithful to their partner.
The most common reason for women in the UK to start a diet is trying to attain ‘the perfect beach body’, while one in seven said they were motivated by cruel taunts over their weight.
A quarter of women admitted they thought dieting was more important than their relationship and said they put more effort into their weight-loss attempts than into their relationship with their partner.
More than a third of respondents said they thought about food and dieting more than they thought about their partner and 54 per cent confessed they thought about food more than sex.
Weight loss company Atkins surveyed 1,290 female dieters across the UK about their attitudes to dieting and how it affected their relationships.
The company estimated that three quarters of the UK adult female population have been on a diet at least once in their lifetime.
