Dieting can be pretty antisocial. It's harder to go out for dinner, it's harder to go to parties . . . and it's hard because you might be making the people around you feel like LAZY SLOBS. So this makes a lot of sense.
A new study found that for every seven pounds you lose on a diet, you ALSO lose one FRIEND.
The study included more than 2,500 people who dieted in the past 18 months . . . and 81% said they'd lost at least one friend in the process.
65% said they'd lost a friend because the friend was jealous . . . and 53% said they'd lost a friend because the lifestyle changes they made during the diet drove them apart.
But . . . it's a sacrifice almost ALL of them would make again. 92% say losing weight made a, quote, "significant positive impact" on their life . . . regardless of the friends they lost.
