Pick Your Friends Carefully
how your relationships can effect your weight
It was all over CNN and other news outlets; the research that showed that weight gain in one person can influence weight gain in others. At least that's the conclusion of a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine. The study involved a detailed analysis of a social network of 12,067 people who had been closely followed for 32 years in the Framingham study.
The study demonstrated that the closeness of your friendships is related to how much weight you may gain. Friends and siblings of the same sex appear to have more influence on the weight gain of each other than those of the opposite sex.
Your best friends may increase your chances of gaining weight by 57 percent. The researchers found that if a person gained 17 pounds, the network effect caused their friends to gain 5 pounds.
Knowing that your weight loss efforts are influenced by the appearance and behaviors of those around you makes clear the importance of having a social network of support. Spending time with others who have weight loss goals will help to influence behaviors such as eating smaller portions and taking time to exercise.
This is not to say that you should pick your friends based on their weight... not at all. But, a good support mechanism will help you reach your fitness goals quicker.
Have an excellent day.
