Wolf whistles named top weight-loss motivator

London, January 5 : While more than half of women say they would like to be on the receiving end when men wolf-whistle in our direction, almost a third of female dieters say being complimented in the most garish of ways is one of the single biggest motivators to losing more weight.

Despite more than half of us embarking on a New Year diet, a lack of confidence, motivation and willpower mean nearly 39 percent give up after just two weeks, the Daily Mail reported.

The research from XLS-Medical Fat Binder found that more than a quarter of dieters lose motivation when their weight loss efforts go unnoticed.

Around 85 per cent of dieters will be motivated by a simple and sincere compliment, with 66 percent enjoying someone asking "have you lost weight?", and 53 percent believing that someone saying "you look great" helps keep things on track.

Moreover, a good old-fashioned wolf-whistle will encourage 28 percent of us to stick to our weight-loss plans, with 54 percent of people polled saying they love receiving one. (ANI)
