    I would have thought Americans were the worst.

    You are so right they haven't met us but perhaps we represent the 14% who do see it through.

    I don't know where they get there facts from. I think they question say, 100 people and do there figures from that.

    Can not see that being truly representative of ALL British women dieters..............

    The article says that they questioned just over 1500 women across the world! There is no way that this could be a meaningful survey.

    The dimwittedness of the tabloids just goes on and on!

    I don't need another reason to hate the daily fail- the fact that it still exists to peddle it's heinously smug up it's own backside drivel is reason enough. It, and it's journalists are so far removed from reality you might be forgiven for assuming they are reporting on events happening up The Faraway Tree.

    Unfortunately there does exist a mindset that sucks up the tripe that they spout - I am thankful every day that I do not share it.
