We're finally giving up. Fewer people are dieting and women are leading the decline. In 1992, 35% of women said they were dieting. Last year it was 23%. Helping that trend is the perception that skinny is not all that attractive. In 1985, 55% of people thought people who were not overweight were more attractive. That number has dropped to fewer than one-in-four.
