Friday, 03 Jan 2014 12:21 PM


Saying "I do" could have an impact on your waistline, according to a survey conducted in the U.K. by Forza Supplements and reported by the Daily Mail.

Of the 1,000 people polled for the study, a majority admitted to growing heavier since tying the knot. For 40 percent of respondents, weight gain occurred at a rate of 4 pounds per year on average.

While 22 percent of those surveyed reported gaining 2 pounds annually since entering marriage, nearly as many respondents said they gained a whopping 6 pounds per year.

Somewhat reassuringly, almost a fifth of those surveyed (18 percent) indicated that they had not seen a change on the scales.

When asked to explain the reasons behind their sudden weight gain, over 50 percent of respondents who had become heavier since their wedding day confessed that they spent more time snacking together in front of the TV. A majority of respondents also indicated feeling less pressure to maintain a slim figure once they had settled into the commitment of marriage.
