At least the change in observed in their shapes! Some couples take it lightly while the others become increasingly conscious of their looks. People say that the “happiness” after marriage has resulted in “good health” of the couple. But is it good health in reality? In fact, a weight gain diminishes the glamour that a new couple should have. Let's study the reasons why one puts on weight after marriage:
Too much of eating out: Your close friends, family and colleagues invite you over for food, there are parties thrown for you , or by you. And practically it's too hard to diet, when the party is in your honor.
Travelling: Newly wedded couples tend to travel a lot, hence having food from restaurants becomes a compulsion.
Time: Busy schedules leave less time for physical activity and cooking healthy meals, especially for the bride, who has to start her life all over again and make a new routine for herself. Finding time to do workouts turns out to be a bit difficult.
Impression: Wives try to cook the best food to impress the family and the husbands. Hence, the idea of a low calorie meal is blown away. Cream, ghee, butter are added in good amount to add more taste to the food. Good taste again contributes to an increased portion intake.
Frequent eating: House wives tend to put on more weight due to the frequent binging. Many times, couples want to eat meals together. Till the partner arrives, the wife becomes hungry, and to tackle such situations many women tend to eat snacks to avoid the guilty feeling of having meals before their partners.
Emotional eating: The new environment, new people around, the newness of so many things together, can make a women nervous. Emotional eating is one of the biggest cause of obesity.
Company: Many times people tend to pick up their partners' eating habits and their appetite as well. This leads to weight gain.How can I avoid weight gain after marriage?
Since all these causes of weight gain after marriage are avoidable, you can combat these situations. Let's try out these alternatives:
Plan for an activity together: When both of you are determined to avoid such a condition, spending some time together, working-out or even going out for walking or jogging together can help you in maintaining fitness levels. In addition, you also get a chance to spend some quality time together talking to each other!
Enjoy each other's company: When two of you form a habit of working out together, there are lesser chances of you getting bored of the activity and leaving it entirely. The partners always keep each other motivated and hence the regime for workouts or walks would last for a longer period.
Monitor your food intake: Monitoring your food intake is very necessary. Enjoy food but make sure you eat it under limitations. Don't overeat! At the same time monitor your partner's intake as well.
Get involved in other physical activities: If you don't like to exercise, try some more options of physical activities, like swimming together, playing a sport together or simple things like taking a short walk together after dinner every night. This way, exercise would give you pleasure and fitness both.
Focus on homemade foods: Avoid eating out a lot. You can make a healthy low fat meal at home and enjoy a candle light dinner at home itself. And while eating out, choose your options wisely. Always order a salad and soup before the main course.
Have dinner early: If you feel hungry, the best thing is to have your dinner early. Don't wait for your partner or you'll end up overeating and taking in some extra calories. You don't need to feel guilty about it. Accompany your partner while he eats, by sitting with him and talking to him.
