Step 1: Know the stats Know the statistics: married people tend to gain the most weight, followed by couples who live together, then couples who are dating, while singles are the slimmest. Vigilance is necessary if you want to beat the odds. Tip The weight gain for married women is greater than it is for married men. Step 2: Understand the reasons Understand some of the reasons people put on the love chub after coupling up: changes in eating routines that lead to greater calorie intake, a decrease in physical activity, and less motivation to stay slim now that they're no longer on the prowl for a mate. Step 3: Eat like you're single Eat like you're still single. If you wouldn't have dreamed of eating half a pepperoni pizza for dinner when you were unattached, don't do it now. And don't feel obligated to eat the same foods or portions as your partner is eating; there's no law that you have to share the same exact meals. Tip Watch the booze and ice cream: married people drink more alcohol and eat more dessert than singles do. Step 4: Find an activity One of the best ways to prevent love chub is not to cuddle on the couch every night. Find a calorie-burning activity that requires a commitment so you're more likely to stick with it. Step 5: Consider separate beds Consider separate beds -- or even separate bedrooms -- if your partner's sleep habits are interfering with your ability to get a good night's rest. Sleeping fewer than 7 hours a night corresponds with greater risk for obesity. Step 6: Stay fit for you If, like many people, trying to attract a mate was your main motivation for staying slim when you were single, find new inspiration: your health. Did You Know? Women are more likely to adopt their partner's eating habits than vice versa.
