If you make an effort to lose weight, you’ll be doing your partner a favour too – a recent study at the University of Connecticut that tracked the weight-loss progress of 130 couples over six months found that when one member of the couple commits to losing weight, the chances are good the other partner will lose some weight too, even if they’re not participating in a weight-loss programme.
In the study, approximately one third of the partners of dieters lost at least three per cent of their body weight – considered a measurable health benefit – despite not actively trying to.
Simple things such as healthier shared meals and joint exercising may explain why this happens.
