I just read in the news that a study has shown that after men get married they gain weight. They supposedly simply give up trying to keep the weight off . Here's what I say about that: The people who did this study should have stopped to consider that when people get married they are older than they were when they wern't married. This is a universal rule. As people get older this means that time is passing and they have had more time to gain weight. Not only that but their life-style changes. They become less physically active and food is more readily available for several reasons. I've noticed that people gain weight after leaving high school and still others gain weight after leaving college. If the scholarly people who did the afore mentioned study find this out they'll claim that reading is what keeps your weight down.
