Majority of Women Would Have Sex Every Day to Keep Weight Under Control

Brand X Pictures/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Women will apparently do most anything, including have sex each and every day, in order to avoid gaining weight.  A recent survey of 1,000 women by Slim-Fast finds 59 percent of respondents would have sex every day if it meant losing weight and keeping it off.

Additional findings from the Slim-Fast survey:

    * 45 percent of women surveyed would never have another glass of wine or any other alcohol if it meant they would never gain another pound.
    * 35 percent would never have coffee if it meant they would never gain another pound.
    * 29 percent would never touch chocolate again if it meant they would never gain another pound.
    * When asked if they would give up their best friend to never gain another pound, only five percent of women surveyed would choose to never speak to their best friend again.

Women also were asked to identify their most significant motivation to slim down:

    * Get into a bathing suit for the summer -- 40 percent
    * New Year’s Resolution -- 33 percent
    * Weddings -- 25 percent
    * High school reunions -- 20 percent
