    Men underreported their weight by 3.5 pounds, whereas women underreported their weight by 4 pounds according to a study from Malmo University Hospital in Malmo, Sweden.

    Both sexes overreported their height, but only by an average of 0.1 to 0.2 inches.

    The study surveyed 860 men and 843 women, 30- to 75-years-old in the community of Vara, Sweden.
