A new study has found that women lies about their eating and drinking habits. According to the study a woman tells 468 lies a year about what she has eaten, how much she has eaten and how much she drank.
The study, commissioned by Timex, found that she lies about her diet nine times per week.
AdvertisementCommon classic lies include: 'It was only a small portion', after consuming a large dish or 'I'll have a big lunch so I won't eat much after this', when in fact they know they will, the Daily Express reported.
Others to be wheeled out regularly include 'I only treat myself once in a blue moon', while munching on treats all day, and 'I always eat my five-a-day'.
The study was conducted to launch Timex's Health Tracker watch, designed to help people to enter calories consumed into a daily food diary and show how many - or how few - are burnt off throughout the day.
