Men Gain Weight After Divorce. Woman Gain Weight After Marriage
For women, the risk of a significant gain in weight is most likely after marriage, however, for men, this is risk increased after a divorce.
Professors and researchers of sociology at Ohio State University collected and used data on 10,072 people surveyed from the year 1986 – 2008 to determine the tendency of weight gain in 2 years following a divorce and marriage. “Married females usually have a larger role around the house than the men, and they may have less time for exercise and being fit than unmarried ones.” Reported by researchers. “in contrast, research shows that married men get better health benefits from marriage, and they lose that advantage after getting divorced, which leads to weight gain.”
Early Bed/Early to Rise—Keeping Children Leaner
In a research published in Journal of SLEEP, kids who sleep late and wake up late were 1.5 times more likely to be obese as compared to kids who sleep and wake up early.
Late nighters are nearly twice as likely to be physically inactive as well as 2.9 times more likely to sit and watch TV or play games of n computer for more hours than suggested. Here are some useful findings of another research at the University of South Australia.
Early bed and early risers who sleep 70-90 minutes earlier, woke up 60-80 minutes earlier and managed 27 minutes moderate to vigorous exercises every day as compared to late risers.
Late bed and late risers played video games, watched television or were online 48 minutes more every day as compared to early bed and early-risers, primarily between 7 in the evening and midnight.
They replaced around 30 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity with 30 minutes of sedentary activities every day.
BMI of late risers was higher than early risers and later risers were obese.
Late bed and late risers were found to live in major cities, have fewer siblings and come from lower income class as well as have part time jobs.
