Marriage bad for waistline

Marriage bad for waistline


The study revealed that over a third of all brides found it difficult to eat healthily during the first year of their marriage because they no longer had the wedding day or honeymoon to motivate them.
A quarter admitted they turned to comfort eating to cheer them up because they were so upset that their big day was over, while 31 per cent said they did so simply because they did not know what to do with themselves when they no longer had a wedding to plan for.

While 22 per cent of newlyweds put on weight within a year of the ceremony, more than one in five of those brides who gained weight ended up rowing with their partner over the extra pounds, the ‘Daily Mail’ reported.
More than half said they no longer worried about their appearance and weight after their big day, while one in five overindulged on their honeymoon.
Forty-two per cent admitted they simply got too relaxed with their new husband, and 22 per cent even said they no longer felt they needed to impress their loved-one once they had tied the knot, the study found.
A Spokesman for yogurt-maker Yakult, which carried out the research, said: “For months, losing weight and getting their body into perfect shape for their wedding is the most important thing for most brides-to-be.

“Then suddenly, post-wedding, we forget about keeping our waistline in shape and sometimes seem to make up for lost time — especially on all-inclusive honeymoons.
“But it also becomes difficult for some to take as much care of their appearance when they relax into their new routine, and forget the little things they used to do to make sure they were always looking their best for their partner.
“Some people face that post-wedding anti-climax with comfort eating and staying in rather than having healthy meals and gym visits, and find their previous hard work all goes to waste.”
