Not exactly breaking news . . . but people lie about food.  A lot.  And you know who I blame?  SOCIETY.  Let us be chubby and happy.

According to a new survey sponsored by Timex, the average woman tells 474 lies about food and drink EVERY YEAR.  That’s an average of 1.3 lies per day, and about nine per week.

CHOCOLATE is the food women are most likely to lie about, followed by potato chips, cake, candy, cheese, bread, and burgers.

The survey also compiled a list of the top 20 lies that women tell about food.  What are they?
