LOS ANGELES --A new poll sheds some light on just how badly people want to lose weight. In a poll of just over 1,000 people, about half of the women said they would rather go without sex for the summer than gain 10 pounds.
One quarter of the men felt the same way.
Here are some other findings:
- Most people said they would rather shed 10 to 20 pounds during the summer than get promoted at work.
- Three quarters of men and women said they'd be willing to give up something, such as watching TV, shopping, or using a cell phone, for a flat tummy.
- Almost half said they don't diet because they don't want to give up their favorite foods.
