Young working women dieting for fitness, not thinness

jQuery(window).on('load', function() { var theConfig;theConfig = kenyn_piegraph_stats([57.1, 20.3, 13.3, 6.5, 2.8], ["Sufficiently muscular healthy", "Skinny model body", "Macho muscular well-built", "Glamorous body", "Other"], 'What is your ideal body shape?', 'myChart1-ideal-body-shape.png');jQuery('.chart-canvas').show(); var ctx = document.getElementById('myChart1-ideal-body-shape.png').getContext("2d"); new Chart(ctx, theConfig); });

This survey from MyNavi on dieting revealed a pleasantly surprisingly positive view of dieting amongst young working women, despite television and magazines pushing the stick insect as the ideal body shape.

Being none of dieting, young, woman or gym-visiting, I cannot really comment much, although I was a bit surprised that meeting people (the language implied for friendship too, not just searching for a partner) was so low down in the list. The gym my wife visits is quite the social club, full of drama that I hear about in great details most nights.

Hot Yoga may no longer be the in thing, but wonky English never goes out of fashion:
