 25 Percent of 'Dieting Women' Lecture Friends on Food Habits
Almost half of dieting women transform into 'Food Bores' by endorsing diet tips to their peers, finds new survey.

In a research study of 2,000 women, 41 percent told that they had stopped eating something after their weight-obsessed friends scared them into changing their diet, while 35 percent of women said that they avoided friends who were trying to lose weight because their preaching made them feel guilty about what they ate, the Daily Express reported.

A spokesman for The Simply Great Drinks Company, which backed the research, said that they are turning into a nation obsessed with diet and that they had just launched an eight-week challenge which guides people as they make manageable and lasting changes to their diet, exercise routines and mindset.
