Some put on almost 3kg a year.
SAYING “I do” could have an impact on your waistline, according to a survey conducted in Britain by Forza Supplements and reported by the Daily Mail.
Of the 1,000 people polled for the study, a majority admitted to growing heavier since tying the knot. For 40% of respondents, weight gain occurred at a rate of 1.8kg per year on average.
While 22% of those surveyed reported gaining 0.9kg annually since entering marriage, nearly as many respondents said they gained almost 3kg per year.
Somewhat reassuringly, almost a fifth of those surveyed (18%) indicated that they had not seen a change on the scales.
When asked to explain the reasons behind their sudden weight gain, over 50% of respondents who had become heavier since their wedding day confessed that they spent more time snacking together in front of the TV. A majority of respondents also indicated feeling less pressure to maintain a slim figure once they had settled into the commitment of marriage. – AFP Relaxnews
