How many times have you sat at your desk and fantasized about your after work plans? Now…be honest, did that fantasy incude a no-hold-barred love making session with your boo, or the delicious meal you were going to devour when you got home?
Recently, a new study by Atkins (yes, #sideeye) of nearly 1300 women in the UK found that 54% thought about food more than they thought about sex, and nearly 25% felt that dieting was more important than their relationship. Even more shocking? The results found that the respondents would feel guiltier about cheating on their diet than on their partner. Damn.
While we may have to take these results with a grain of salt since they were sponsored by diet giant Atkins, the fact that many women are obsessed with our bodies and food is very real.
Emotional eating, eating disorders, and the media’s insistence that perfect women are thin women, it’s no wonder many of us are totally crazy about our bodies.
But what do you think…would you rather have a good meal or good sex? And why ARE we so obsessed with food and our bodies?
Let’s talk about it!
