Just Married! (And Likely To Pack On Pounds)
By Marissa Hicken |
Kim Kardashian tied the knot this weekend, outfitted in Vera Wang and in tip-top shape. But will marriage be a good look for the 30-year-old bride? If recent research is any indicator, we should expect to see the newlywed beauty packing on the pounds.
A new study examined the effects of weight gain in the two years following a marriage or divorce among 10,000 people in the United States. Findings showed that those people were likely to have weight gain in the two years following their marital transition.
Additionally, people over the age of 30 were most likely to gain weight after marriage or a divorce, according to the study. But results varied for men and women with men generally facing post-divorce weight gain and women most often putting on the pounds post-marriage. We'll have to keep a close eye on Kim the next two years.
