Lose Weight – Make More Money

Hartford York Hats - Woolen Winter Hats for Men and Women - Unisex Cashmere Cap - The Portolano CapSomehow I missed a study that found that people who lose a lot of weight tend to build wealth as they drop the pounds. A research scientist at Ohio State University’s Center for Human Resource Research says he isn’t clear on the reason why there’s a connection between fat loss and cash gain, but it’s absolutely there. And we’re not just talking a pound or two – you’ve gotta lose some serious lard for this equation to work.

For example, white women who dropped their body mass index score (BMI) – a standard measure of obesity – by 10 points saw a wealth increase of $11,880. White men saw an increase of $12,720 for a similar drop, while black women increased wealth by $4,480.

Right now, I’m leaning toward putting on a few stone, just so I can take it off again and reap my just rewards.

Oh, yes. Apparently “the wealth of black men was basically unaffected by their weight“, so I guess you guys can get rich at whatever weight you are. I’m a bit like that with hats – I look good in whatever – a porkpie, fedora or bucket hat – I’m gorgeous.
