Nagging wives can make men lose weight Home

London, December 15:

The best way for a wife to persuade her husband to shed a few pounds may be to nag him about it as well, a study has revealed.Research shows some men are much more likely to lose weight if their other halves criticise, confront and reject them, rather than offer sugar-coated encouragement, the Daily Mail reported.

American researchers who studied how couples support each other in the battle of the bulge found men who lacked motivation to diet and exercise got much better results if their wives gave them a hard time over it.But it seems the same approach does not work for women.They found women regularly criticised by their partner for gaining extra pounds were unlikely to take action.

The psychologists behind the study, from the University of California in Los Angeles, Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, and Florida State University, said that they think the reason may be that women already face such intense pressure from society to remain slim that if they have not already been prompted to do something about their weight, a few harsh words from their husbands is unlikely to make much difference.The findings were published in the Journal of Family Psychology.
