According to a study in the Journal of Applied Psychology examining the relationship between income and weight in men and women,
"very thin" women earn $22,000 more than their "average-weight counterparts." What's worse is that, according to Forbes, women who are overweight even less. Unsurprisingly, men can be as fat as they want without having to tighten their proverbial belts: They're paychecks aren't really affected by their weight gain.
