Womens favourite lies


- It was only a small portion -.
.
Is women's favourite untruth.
.
And one of nine lies told weekly by the average woman.
.
It is often followed by - I'll have a big lunch so I won't eat much after this -
.
And - I only treat myself once in a while -.
.
Claiming always to eat five portions of fruit and vegetables a day.
.
Never eating biscuits and only drinking one glass of wine a day 
.
Are also common falsehoods, according to a study released by Timex.
.
Women often claim to be only - eating the childrens' leftovers -
.
Or "testing the dinner" when indulging, the watch manufacturer found.
.
Other questionable claims include never eating fast food. 
.
Only drinking to toast a special occasion. 
.
And claiming that red wine is healthy.
.
Chocolate, crisps, cake, wine, cheese and bread are among the foods most likely to be the subject of deception, the survey of 3,000 people found.
.
Studies show that keeping a food diary can double weight loss, but few do. 
.
But it seems that rather than being honest about the food and drink which passes our lips, many women are lying about it
.
Or completely denying it altogether.
.
But while this might save them some embarrassment in front of their partner or friends in the short term
.
It's not going to help them reach their health and weight loss goals in the future.
.
By lying to their loved ones, women are also lying to themselves 
.
And could easily see their weight creep up.
.
So what, we can observe that this has all been said before.
.
Many times
.
In many different ways
.
Unless we start looking women's lives where we find the causes of their self abuse.
.
Self abuse?
.
Yes, for that is what it is, when they know perfectly well that over indulging or binging is not good for them.
.
And when we look at anyone's life we find stress.
.
Although many women surveyed work long hours in pressurised jobs, the real stress hotspots were at home. 
.
Two thirds of women pinpointed family feuds, relationship issues and having children as the most stressful things in a woman's life. 
.
Whilst women tend to overeat in tense situations.
.
The survey showed men are more likely to turn to alcohol.
.
With around a third admitting to drinking excessively when under pressure.
.
Women often feel they have no one to turn to.
.
In today's world women are often alone in busy lives.
.
Whether at home or in an office.
.
Family support is usually not available.
.
So a modern life rushing around with no time for self easily leads to food abuse.
.
It's the one thing most of us make time for.
.
The one thing that gives a momentary satisfaction, a pleasure.
.
And it's easily available, too easily.
.
However the pleasure is then followed by remorse, frustration and guilt, lots of guilt.
.
A dangerous cycle starts again, including those lies.
.
Address the causes and then a way out can be found.
.
Deny them and we have more and more overweight women amongst us.
