47% of You Say You’re Unhappy With Your Body
When we decided to conduct a nationwide body survey, we never expected to make this and many other startling discoveries about how you feel in your skin.
Cosmo conducted a nation-wide body survey...and arrived at some startling results.
ast month, Cosmo put out a survey to find out how you really feel about your body. And boy, did you tell us like it is! We received thousands of entries from Cosmo readers, and got ourselves some pretty surprising findings. For instance, we learnt that a large number of you are unhappy with the way you look (47% of those polled, to be precise). But on the bright side, the majority of you have become a lot more accepting of your bodies, with a whopping 85% saying that you aren’t pressured by celebrity crash-diets and drastic weight loss regimes. And not just that, you’re also more conscious and willing to change for the better, with 32% of you working out every day.
