They say you can never have too much money or be too thin.. but apparently there is a preference over the two. A new survey finds that when given a choice, more than half of americans would rather lose one thousand dollars.. than gain 20 pounds.   63-percent of women feel that way, as do 48-percent of men.  Nutritionists suspect people would be willing to lose the money because it’s a pain you would feel once, whereas working off 20 pounds would involve months of exercise.
