Women Try More Diets Than Sex Partners

In the course of her life journey, the average woman will embark upon twice as many diets as sexual relationships, so says a new survey sponsored by (who else?) a diet supplement company and published in the Daily Mail.

On average, the survey participants attempted sixteen diets in their lives and had eight sexual partners. We can only assume that the typical human female is all about that on-again, off-again thing with Atkins, an occasional Jenny Craig fling, going steady with Weight Watchers, and trying out the Zone before finally settling down with Mediterranean. And who could forget that hot summer with Paleo? Memories to keep you warm.
