London, Dec 22 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A new research has revealed some damning facts about UK women that wants to lose weight.

After the research, the researchers concluded that when it comes to dieting, UK women are the worst of the lot. They cannot discipline themselves very well to get the required results.

The researchers said that about a third of British women decided to burn off some of the calories in the past year. Out of that number though, as much of 86 percent failed to achieve a long term weight loss goal. That means British women are worse than all the rich countries when it comes to losing weight.

The researchers made their conclusions after studying about 1,534 women from all over the world. The researchers later realized that about 34 percent of British women gained weight in the past year. 50 percent of British women that were among those questioned said they just exercise about three hours the whole week. That though was not the worst because American and French women exercised much lesser than that.

The researchers made several findings after the study. For instance it was found that British women would likely eat in front of the television than other women in other countries.
