Methods Your Boyfriend Is Supporting You Pack On the Lbs
Are you finding yourself unbuttoning the top button of your pants around your boyfriend and the reason is not that you’re about to get busy? Truth is, relationships can lead to weight gain. If your man likes to eat, drink, cook, or lounge about, spending time with him can affect your eating and exercise habits. Here are six health pitfalls you might experience in your relationship.
- He brings you sweet treats and takes you to new restaurants. If your honey is a food lover, he’ll probably love sharing edibles with you. You can and should enjoy yourself, but be sure not to go overboard. Split desserts, and when he’s excited to share bites with you, enjoy a spoonful or two without inhaling the entire plate.
- He’s into wine and cocktails. Many dinners together involve cracking open a bottle of wine or ordering cocktails. It’s fun to let loose every once in a while, but if you make it a habit, it’s not only bad for your health to enjoy more than one drink a day, it’s also adding unnecessary calories to you diet. Enjoy a glass of wine instead of splitting an entire bottle, and when it comes to cocktails, sip low calorie wine spritzers or a gin and tonic.
- His idea of cooking is ordering takeout. He may think a healthy meal consists of veggies on a pizza, but if you’re constantly eating fast food or takeout, you’re probably downing foods that are major calorie, fat, and sodium bombs. If he’s not a chef by any means, spend time cooking together so you can show him some tips.
