Priority Check, Please!

August 16th, 2010 2:15 pm

I was disturbed to read about a survey recently which found that nearly 50 percent of American women and a quarter of men would gladly give up sex for the summer in exchange for not gaining 10 pounds!

In fact, the survey found that Americans were willing to give up a variety of pleasures in exchange for staying slimmer. For example, recession or not, many Americans would rather lose weight than get a promotion at work. Many would also give up their mobile phones, TV or sex for a flat tummy

Conducted by Nutrisystem weight loss program, the survey took place across the US among 1,001 adults. The results are thought to be representative of the general priorities of the nation. Perhaps this is representative of the UK as well?

Seriously, how sad are we? Where are our priorities? What about fun, joy, happiness, food, SEX !!!  Life is too short.

  2. Oh please. 10 pounds gained for a summer of sex? Er, yes please – I’d burn it off with all the god damn sex anyway! Sex is awesome, it’s even a form of cardiovascular exercise (if you’re doing it right,) and it stimulates all of the right pleasure centers in the brain (not to mention other places,) these people need to look at what is actually important in life.
    A promotion that could be life changing turned down for 10 pounds?! Christ.

  3. How serious a survey can it be if it was “Conducted by Nutrisystem weight loss program”? Sounds like a marketing ploy with skewed results to promote themselves.

    Personally, I’d gain 10 lbs and go with more sex, not less. LOL
