A survey carried out in Britain reveals that women spend more than 17 years going through various diets in order to shed excess weight.
The survey was conducted by Diet Chef which revealed that more than 90 percent of women had indulged in dieting one time or the other in their lives with an average woman dieting at least twice in a year and losing an average of 11lbs each time.
According to the study, the average life expectancy of a woman is 82 years and she loses around 9.1 times of her body weight if she starts dieting when she turns 18 years old. If a woman spends around 7 weeks dieting twice a year, then she would have dieted for more than 17.2 years throughout her lifetime.
"Deciding to lose weight can be an easy one to make when we know we have a special occasion coming up or aren't feeling confident in our appearance, however as we can see actually embarking on a diet and losing the extra pounds is more difficult and takes real commitment", Diet Chef's founder and Head Chef Kevin Dorren said.
