What could you do with $5,002?

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.


  1. When are you going to post again? I like what I've read so far! Can I put a link to this blog on mine? (I couldn't find your blog when I searched for it, so I'm guessing you don't want it to appear in searches and want to restrict readership, that's why I'm asking).

    Looking forward to reading more!
