Several studies have shown that individuals who dine frequently at fast-food restaurants are more likely to be obese than people who rarely eat at such establishments. In a recent examination of body-perception, health psychologists conducted a survey targeting two groups: high- and low-frequency fast-food eaters. To their surprise, the investigators found that approximately 75% of both groups rated themselves as "at a healthy weight."
Which of the following would best explain this finding?
A Many of the high-frequency fast-food eaters were at a healthy weight at the time of the survey.
B The range of weights among the low-frequency fast-food eaters was higher than the weight-range for the high-frequency fast-food eaters.
C Most individuals rate themselves on surveys as being healthy.
D The individuals in the high-frequency fast-food group ate at a variety of restaurants including table-service establishments.
E Many of the high-frequency fast-food eaters had engaged in some form of exercise during the past year.
