Greek scientists have proven that family life leads to excess weight
The life of married people changes after marriage. They stop taking care of themselves, eat more and move less. This conclusion was made by scientists from the Greek University of Ioannina, located in Thessaloniki. They studied as many as 17,000 couples, whose participants ranged in age from 20 to 70 years old.
Married men are three times more likely to be overweight than married women. But in general, both husband and wife after marriage are not up to sports and he althy eating. After all, a partner has already been found, so for whom now to try?
The most unpleasant manifestation of overweight problems in couples is considered to be a "beer tummy". It upsets both men and women the most. Professor Dimitris Kiortsis, who is one of the authors of the study, emphasizes that a change in lifestyle leads to weight gain, first of all. "There is no need to 'hunt' for a partner," he says. - Stress and anxiety are reduced if it's a good marriage. People even smoke less, and this all leads to an increase in appetite.”
You can fight excess weight quite effectively - with the help of a diet. Here, too, marriage can play a role. Researchers have found that if one spouse decides to go on a diet, the other spouse is much more likely to follow suit.
