hen it comes to food, married life may not be easy. The typical situation is that you want to eat healthy and try to keep you at least during the week, but he also gives himself pasta in the evening, the bread never fails at the table, and you don’t want to take a dessert at the end of a meal? So then the diet, which in itself is a word that generates mental laziness, requires even more discipline and willpower. 

How not to fall into temptation? If he eats ice cream by watching your favourite TV series on Netflix, how can you not take at least a teaspoon? And how do you pretend to be happy if, coming out of the gym, he makes you find the ready carbohydrate dinner?

After all we know, true love makes us fat, science also says it. Sentimental happiness is directly proportional to the pounds on the scale. Researchers from the University of Queensland, Australia, followed 6,500 women between 20 and 30 years, for 10 years . This analysis showed that people in pairs weighed 30% more than singles. And the weight gain recorded in one year was about 1.8 kilos. The reasons? Emotional safety leads to letting go, less time is spent on physical exercise, or problems and crises can cause us to let off steam on food. (Blessed are those who do not eat when they suffer).

The first rule to follow in order not to undermine the relationship or nullify the results of the diet is to talk openly with your partner, and try to find a middle way to continue eating together and share the pleasure of food: “Share some ingredients, but customised the portions to put in the dish. If he eats tacos, for example, you can prepare a taco salad without tortilla, cheese and sour cream, but with vegetables, sauce and avocado,” suggests Cynthia Sass, author of the book Slim Down Now: Shed Pounds and Inches With Pulses – The New Superfood.
