Half of women would give up sex rather than gain 10 pounds

About 66% of people say they need to lose weight to feel sexier than they currently do.

By Nanci Hellmich, USA TODAY

For some women, weight control is more important than sex, according to a new poll of 1,001 people.
About half of women say they would rather go without sex for the summer than gain 10 pounds. A fourth of men feel the same way.

More people say they would rather shed 10 to 20 pounds during the summer than get promoted at work.

Of course, weight loss would make them feel sexier. About 66% of people say they need to lose weight to feel sexier than they currently do. It would take a loss of an average 23 pounds to feel hotter.

"What this shows is that people are highly motivated to not gain weight," says Bruce Daggy, vice president of research and development for Nutrisystem. "They recognize what it will do to their feeling of well-being and fitness."

Another poll conducted a few years ago for Fitness magazine found more than half of Americans say they'd rather lose their jobs than get fat.

Ten pounds just isn't that hard to lose. :eek:

Well, yes. It's not like we're going lose 10 pounds skipping a couple of meals but still. Sex is pretty important.

That's where being a good cook pays off for a woman-if you gain ten pounds, you can ensure that he does, too. All it takes is to cook all of his food in butter and your own in olive oil.

Butter actually has fewer calories than olive oil. :p

Like my Daddy used to say when my Mama started gaining weight. "I always told her she'd have to leave if she ever got bigger than me. I'm having to eat my fool self to death to stay with her."

Any woman I'm with would be giving up sex if she gained 10 lbs...with me, anyway.

That was "fat talk". It's not real fat. I know, I do the same thing.
