This slides set outlines the findings of a new study showing that 1 in 3 avoid the truth about themselves. Especially when it comes to their weight, but has wider implications...


  • 1 in 3 Avoid The Truth
  • The truth about ourselves can be scary, inconvenient or unsettling.
  • The Advanced Performance Institute has just completed a study of 1,000 people that finds: More than one third are so reluctant to discover the truth that they actively avoid it!
  • We find: 36% of people are so reluctant to discover the truth about their weight that they only use their scales to weigh things like their suitcases before they go on vacation or check weights of parcels or their pets, and never actually weigh themselves!
  • Maybe 1/3 are simply happy with their weight? No, main reason was:
  • Because I am afraid to learn the truth about my weigh.
  • We need to be better at facing the facts. It might be uncomfortable to face the truth but it is the start from where you can change things.
  • Some prefer to put their head in the sand, but is ignorance really bliss? No, we need to: Face the facts and deal with them!
