It's love that determines a woman's weight!

Feb 12, 2006 - 5:57:00 PM , Reviewed by: Priya Saxena
"It's only natural when we have a period of unhappiness that we comfort eat and when we have an event like a wedding we will work hard to look our best."

 
[RxPG] It is not what a woman eats that dictates her size. It is love or the lack of it that determines her weight, says a new study.

Britain's WeightWatchers, which has helped millions of people around the world lose weight for over 40 years now, studied 3,000 married women and found the different stages the female figure goes through over the course of a lifetime, reported online edition of Daily Mail.

Almost 66 percent of those surveyed said their weight fluctuates depending on how happy they are at a specific time. And 84 percent said their relationship is the biggest factor in their well-being.

"A lot of women won't be surprised by these findings. Our emotions and relationships in particular have an enormous effect on our health and above all our weight," according to WeightWatchers.

"It's only natural when we have a period of unhappiness that we comfort eat and when we have an event like a wedding we will work hard to look our best."

According to the study, first a woman witnesses the Honeymoon Period, when she will lose an average of 8.5 pounds. This is when she's met the man of her dreams and everything is new and exciting. She's so keen to impress that she even orders salad for a romantic meal.

Next she passes through The Comfy Zone, when she will put on 11.3 pounds. This phase stretches to a few years and things are going well. She's so comfortable with her new man that after cosy nights in with a takeaway and a DVD, she has steadily piled on the pounds.

Stage three is The Big Day, when she will lose 9.2 pounds. At last, he has popped the question and there's nothing like a wedding to spur a girl on to look her best. Healthy eating, exercise and plenty of beauty treatments are the norm for any bride-to-be.

Then comes The Baby Boom, when she will put on 16 pounds after giving birth. New mothers have enough on their plate to be worrying about dieting.

Stage five is The Reinvention, when a woman will lose 16 pounds. The children are older and at last she and her husband have more time on their hands. She feels it's time for a midlife makeover to bring back the old spark.
