64 per cent of British men are unhappy with their bodies. Just two per cent think their bodies are perfect. 71 per cent of men believe their partners are unhappy with their bodies. 63 per cent of men wish they could eat less. One per cent of men think having a good body doesn’t matter. 49 per cent of British men most want a physique like Daniel Craig’s. 33 per cent of British men most want a physique like David Beckham’s.
It is noticeable that, at least according to those questioned by Wilkinson Sword (who sponsored the survey):
- 7% of men are pretty certain their partners are unhappy with how they look, but don't agree or care.
- Nearly all the men unhappy with their bodies think they are not skinny, plain, or suffering ducks fever, but simply fat.
- 35% of men believe that having a good body DOES matter, yet don't feel unhappy with their own physique. In other words, even though only two percent own up to it, seven men out of every twenty think that they are personally hot.
