The survey, titled "What Do Women Want?" says 56% of U.S. women are more concerned about their physical appearance and weight than serious diseases like cancer, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes.
And even though most women obsess about their diet and weight, only a small percentage of women said they feel they are the ideal weight.
Most women don’t want to work too hard to achieve a healthy lifestyle, opting for simple solutions like drinking more water or eating more fruits and vegetables over the more disciplined approaches like exercising regularly, counting calories, and using portion control.
