From stripping naked on the scales to drying wet hair, women go to extreme lengths to think themselves slim, said a latest research.

More than 80 percent of women find dieting stressful and nearly half of them said stress is the main reason for them to fail in a diet, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

The poll was conducted as part of the Small Steps campaign in partnership with English actress Nadia Sawalha. The campaign aims to take the stress out of dieting by providing advice the Small Steps people can take to reach their healthy diet and lifestyle goals.
