GETTING HITCHED: Could be the key to staying slim.
BEING married could help you stay slim. A Japanese study of people with type two diabetes revealed that single people were twice as likely to become overweight than those who were married. The researchers also found that married men were less likely to suffer metabolic syndrome; a combination of diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity.
The findings were presented at the European Association for the Study of Diabetes meeting in Munich.
The researchers said living with a husband or wife was the ‘most fundamental’ form of social support and that people who were in a loving relationship were more likely to eat healthily, take their medication, and go to the doctor if they are sick.
