Sandy Szwarc has an excellent post over at Junkfood Science today.
Apparently, the average woman spends $5,002 per year on losing weight. For that spectacular outlay of dollars, she'll lose a whopping 3 pounds - and, of course, gain it all back. Over a lifetime, that works out to roughly $310,000.
$310,000. One house. Eleven cars. 88 diamond rings. 3100 fancy gourmet dinners.
Or three pounds.
You do the math.
