Top 10 Lies That Women Dieters Tell

January 10, 2012

“It was only a small portion”. Does this sound familiar? If yes, you’re not alone: 3,000 women aged 21 to 50 in the U.K. were just surveyed about their drinking and eating habits. They admitted telling more than one lie per day to themselves – and to others – to excuse their questionable dietary habits. By the way, it’s not just women …. man use the same excuses.

This survey was commissioned by Timex, which is launching a Health Tracker watch that it claims will help keep you honest.
