According to a new poll of over 2,000 women across the UK by the New Atkins Diet, women are more likely to be inspired by pictures of their skinnier selves than a fit celeb strutting in a swimsuit.
Two thirds of women would use a skinny photo of their own bods compared to just 12 per cent who would use an image of a famous figure. Women polled were most turned off their diets by Victoria Beckham, followed by Cheryl Cole. Furthermore, 90 per cent of women stated that they don’t believe the played out claim from celebs that they could eat ‘whatever they want’ and not gain a pound.
The old adage that motivation comes from within clearly bears true when it comes to getting that dream figure.
