Is your relationship making you fat?Posted on: August 9, 2013 10:46:22
We have all been there, opting to order a calorific takeaway for a cosy night on the couch with the other half, but is this complacency in a relationship responsible for making lovers put on weight?
According to finding from new research, the answer is yes. A survey carried out by Diet Chef revealed being romantically involved is the single biggest cause of weight gain - and is even worse for our waistlines than overindulging while on holiday or comfort eating after a love split.
Analysts found that 62 per cent of respondents claimed they had gained up to one stone after entering into a committed relationship, with just under three quarters believing their partner had also piled on the pounds.
Two thirds of those people taking part in the survey said they have put on weight at the same time as their other half, reports the Daily Mail.
When quizzed about the reasons why, most respondents said they now had more junk in their trunk because they spent most of the time curled up in front of the TV eating junk food with their other half.
In addition, enjoying a high number of romantic meals out together was cited as another factor that contributed to weight gain for couples.
Women also claimed they had piled on the pounds because they regularly ate the same size portion as their boyfriend, with 56 per cent admitting they ate more than usual due to preparing meals with their beau.
Commenting on the study's findings, a Diet Chef spokesman said: "It's widely known that people tend to put on a little bit of weight once they have found love, but what we didn't expect to find was that the weight gain is on average a stone, if not more.
"We appreciate the role food plays in a relationship, and whilst enjoyment of food is great, it's important to stay healthy and monitor what you eat on a daily basis, especially portion size."
