Only one in every fifty British women is happy with the shape of her body, a survey has found.
While Kelly Brook, the model, was considered to have the best British female body, most women wanted to lose an average of 19lb in weight.
The survey of 5,000 women, conducted on behalf of Grazia, the magazine, found the average woman worries about her body every 15 minutes -- more frequently than men think about sex -- while 29 per cent worry about their size and shape every waking minute.
Of those questioned in the poll, nine out of ten said that they dieted, with 41 per cent saying they were constantly on a diet. Half admitted to lying about their weight, and almost a third cut size labels out of clothes, the research revealed.
