Would You Gain 25 Pounds to Erase Your Debt?

A survey by Credit Karma asked people if they’d be willing to gain 25 pounds in exchange for having their debt completely wiped out, and I have to say I am shocked that nearly 3/4 of them said ‘no.’ I though we’d all jump on an offer like that. Guess not.

The survey results, appearing in Business Review USA, reported that 72% of us would rather stay in debt, and not take on the extra weight. So I guess our looks bother us less than our finances. As are country, aren’t we both overweight and in debt?

Another piece of the survey that I would have guessed wrong on; women were more likely than men to say they’d take on the weight to get rid of their debt.

Does that mean they care less about their bodies? (Doubt it.) Or that they have more debt?
