The Coupled Up Bubble Up? Why People In Love Gain Weight.

Fat-Kim-Kardashian-Kanye-West

You ever wonder why when people hook up long term, they tend to gain some weight? I do. Is it contentment? Laziness? What is it? Of course the picture we see above is not true to life-and it is not an insensitive commentary on the now pregnant Kim, but I think it gets a point across.

Typically, when a person is in a newly committed relationship, they are happy, right? So what do you do when you are happy? You celebrate! What goes along with celebrating? Eating and drinking.  When you are happy, people can overindulge to kind of keep those feelings of euphoria going.

For the ladies-when you eat out with your man and you both order relatively the same thing say, a sandwich, chips and a drink.  Do you eat it all? The same portion of a grown man? Think about it. His eating habits could be rubbing off on you.

Who loves spending times with your significant other all hugged up and stuff?  I do! Who has kids and dogs and jobs and a spouse/partner? I have three out of four and my job involves exercise and it can be tough for me to schedule time after all of that stuff.  Busy adults have busy lives-even when they are single. But add another that you want to spend more time with? That makes it even tougher.

Fortunately, there are some solutions. If you see your signficant other gaining weight or engaging in unhealthy habits, schedule of healthy couple/family time! Go on walks together, sign up for a 5K and run that together, workout together!  Another great couple activity? Sex. It can burn up to 250 calories per hour!  And of course, you could always sign up for couples training with a personal trainer 😉 (Call me! I love coming up with partner exercises!).
