The article presents the results of a survey on women about their appetites and attitude. The survey conducted by "Fitness Magazine" found that nearly one in four women would be willing to spend a week behind bars to reach their ideal weight. Nearly 50 percent responded that they would rather lose 20 pounds than live to be 100 years old. Almost 41 percent of women diet more often in order to look better than to feel better or to be healthier.
