A survey conducted by the weight loss program Nutrisystem, found that people would give up rewards and pleasures to keep the pounds off — and that includes giving up sex!
In fact, the survey found that 50% of women in the US would remain celibate for the summer just so they wouldn't gain an extra 10 pounds. Only 25% of men would do the same.
The chairman and CEO of Nurtrisystem explains:
The fact of the matter is, America is obsessed with dieting and weight loss, but the majority of Americans arenít eating healthier or getting thinner.
The same survey also found that 73% of Americans would give up their cell phones, TVs or computers while 25% would give up a promotion at work just to avoid an extra 10 to 20 pounds!
