Many women misperceive their weight

UPI, November 30, 2010

Continuing to receive widespread coverage is the study by UTMB Health Drs. Mahbubur Rahman and Abbey Berenson that appeared in Obstetrics and Gynecology, showing that almost one-quarter of young women who are overweight actually perceive themselves as being normal weight, while a sizable minority (16 percent) of women at normal body weight actually fret that they’re too fat. The study also appeared on News 12 The Bronx, KLUV-FM (Dallas), Yahoo! Español, the Calgary Herald and Glamour.com.
