A new study found that nearly 1 in 4 overweight American women "misperceives" her body weight as normal, while conversely, around 1 in 6 normal weight women regards herself as overweight.

The study is published in the December issue of Obstetrics & Gynecology, and is the work of lead author Dr Mahbubur Rahman, Assistant Professor in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology at the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) in Galveston, and Dr Abbey Berenson, Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Pediatrics Chief in the UTMB Division of Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology.

While the study only included low-income women attending publicly funded clinics in Texas, it does reflect findings of studies of other groups, reports HealthDay news.
