It's Your Call

November 07, 1990

Callers to The Evening Sun's SUNDIAL are overweight and don't care. At last that's what the results from yesterday's

questions about personal weight seem to suggest.

The Evening Sun wanted to know whether callers thought they were overweight, underweight or at the perfect weight. The majority, 152 of the 233 callers, (67 percent) said they were overweight. Eight said they were underweight and 62 said they were at the perfect weight.

But a majority of the callers also said they did not diet during 1990, nor do they plan to diet after the holidays. Fifty-three percent (123 callers) said they didn't diet during 1990 while 47 percent said they did. Callers responded by the same percentages when asked about post-holiday dieting.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
