Women Gain More Weight Than Men In The First Year Of Marriage
The thing I love about the internet and the endless information is that you can basically find a study to prove yourself right on any subject. Though the person you are arguing with can also do the same thing. Last week I wrote that married men gain more weight than women, now I am writing that women gain more weight than men in the first year of marriage. So confusing! But - don't blame it on the marriage. Blame it on food and people's different eating habits.
I believe it happened in my marriage. For the first 2 years my wife would cook healthy meals and I would eat small amounts and pick out the excessive vegetable content. After 2 years my wife finally realized - and I was finally starved and willing to point out - that I don't eat vegetables. So she stopped cooking for me if she knew I wouldn't eat it and I started eating like a man again.
There's a lot of science behind both reports, but I think men lose weight because they are not used to eating like women or they eat less for appearances. But after that first year I think men get into a groove and that is why they end up in the long run gaining more weight than the women. But that is just my opinion.
