63-Percent Of Women Would Rather Lose $1000 Than Gain 20 Pounds
Posted May 24th, 2013 @ 11:19am

Sixty-three-percent of American women would rather lose one-thousand dollars than put on 20 pounds overnight, according to a new survey from the International Food Information Council. 

Men appeared to be slightly less worried about weight gain -- only 48-percent said they'd rather give up some cash than gain weight.  Sudden changes in weight seem to be a matter on people's minds across the board. 

Fifty-six-percent of respondents said they were trying to lose weight at the time the survey was conducted, and 38-percent said they are either always or often thinking about their calorie consumption.  Only four out of ten said they believed they had "complete control" over their weight.
