Research shows that food is a central thing in a love relationship. Even a study by the University of Glasgow revealed that newly married couples will gain an average weight gain of up to 2-3 kilograms in the first five years of marriage. While couples who choose to live together will even get fat faster, which is around 1.5 – 2 kilograms in a period of 3 months.
Wonder why this could happen? Let’s check the 4 scientific reasons the couple fattened after marriage so you can avoid it:
- Change in Personal Routines
Previously, single people more often ate at home or brought food to the office, now the eating routine might have changed. Newly married couples may prefer to eat out, often spending time in restaurants, although they feel they still consume the same type of menu as before. The fact is that food outside will still contain higher calories due to extra sugar, fat and sodium.
The solution? Try to find a new routine balance for matters of eating. It’s okay to enjoy a romantic moment in a restaurant once in a while, but soon return to normal routine for the sake of health and financial both.
- Follow the Couple Eating Style
Vegetable lovers can be ‘infected’ hobby of eating fatty meat of their partners. There is a tendency to influence one another’s style and appetite, where you motivate each other to eat more – whether you realize it or not. Not to mention, couples will more often want to try a new menu because they have partners who are ready to support it.
The solution? This one needs self-awareness to remind each other if they are too far, not plunging each other. Oops!
- Frequent Hangouts, Rarely Sports
A study released in September 2017 by The Journal of Social and Personal Relationship, couples who now share their lives will now share the same hobbies, time, and media hobbies. Couples will tend to spend time doing things that can be enjoyed together. If the wife does not like sports, then it is not impossible that the exercise routine is also slowly abandoned by her husband.
The solution? Try to find new activities that are more useful together. No need to focus on managing the body, but still prioritize health.
- Sleep Quality Worsens
Sleeping with a partner in the same bed can increase sleep disorders by up to 50%, according to the National Sleep Foundation. The main cause is often due to snoring problems, not accustomed, and so forth. As a result of this decreased quality of sleep, the risk of weight gain, hormones become chaotic which affects appetite, and also health problems.
The solution? If one of your partner’s sleep disorders affects enough of your sleep quality, try to consult a doctor or health professional.
