Love makes you feel special but it can also make you fat. If you've always suspected
that your new relationship is expanding your waistline, you can now blame your paunch
on your boyfriend. Here are a few possible reasons why having a boyfriend makes you
gain weight and what you can do about it.
When you're single and looking for love, you probably made an extra effort to look
good. You eat a healthy diet and exercise more. You control the amount of bad fats
by cooking healthy meals at home for yourself. You also devoted more time and interest
in running or going to the gym. But once you finally hook up and fall in love, you
miss a workout here, order a greasy takeout there, and before you know it, your pre-boyfriend
jeans feels tight.
What You Can Do to Avoid Getting Fat in Your Romantic Relationship
1. Eat a high protein or a high fiber snack such as a small fruit or nonfat yogurt
before you dine out. Women often starve themselves all day when they're going out
at night. However, it can make you so hungry that you overeat at dinner.
When you're happy just chilling out together, what do you want to do? You order sinfully
rich desserts and have that extra glass of wine. The solution is if you want dessert,
opt for something like fresh berries or fresh fruit that doesn't have any sweet sauces,
and share it with your boyfriend.
2. When your boyfriend suggests a movie date with a washtub of honey-buttered popcorn
and a bladderbuster of coke, counter offer with an outdoor hike and a healthy picnic
that won't pack on the pounds. Fresh fruits, raw veggies, low fat sandwiches and
other low-fat foods are figure-friendly food choices.
3. When a "smaller" you eat as much food as your "bigger" boyfriend, the inevitable
result is unwanted weight gain. A lot of guys don't keep a healthy diet; your guy
might get away eating Red Lobster lobster pizza and Sierra Nevada Bigfoot but not
Eating just salad is no fun so eat only ¾ or even ½ of what he's eating and no more.
Don't forget, guys need more calories than women, and they can eat more without getting
4. Your boyfriend can surely tempt you to stray from healthy eating habits. He leaves
bags of crunchy chips on the coffee table or take the entire container of ice cream
to the couch. You snack along to bond with him.
I know it's not easy to remain strong in the face of temptation and if you mimic
his snacking habits, you could end up with extra pounds. I suggest you either serve
yourself a small portion of his snack or munch a low-fat alternative.
5. You skip the activities that kept you active when you were single because you
want to spend every single moment of the day with him. Make time for physical activities
which you can enjoy together.
You can join the same gym and schedule a workout together, go for walks or a bike
ride. Exercising together is one of the most motivating tools for weight loss. When
people do things together, they're more likely to stick with it.
6. Your boyfriend encourages you to put on weight so that you appear less attractive
to other men. That way, he won't need to compete for your affections in the future.
Or, he has a weight problem himself. And, if you're heavy, he won't be forced to
deal with it. If you find this happening to you, the ideal solution is to sit down
and talk with your boyfriend.
If you want to avoid getting fat in your relationship, be sure to practice these
tips, starting from the very first moment you lay eyes on your boyfriend.
