Ladies, if you’re worried moving in with your significant other will make him lazy and overweight, then you better worry about yourself more than him, as a new study suggests that women are putting on more weight than men when couples move in together.


A third of women said they ate significantly more after moving in with their partner, resulting in a weight gain.

A third of men, however, said they reduced their food intake, and ate foods they considered to be more “womanly,” such as yogurt and salad.

Couples who prepare food together often dish out equal portions of the same meals for each other, neglecting their different dietary needs.

Nutritionist Fiona Hunter says this “one-size-fits all approach” can be detrimental to both partners’ health, partly because the sexes need different vitamins.


“Merging your diet with that of your partner and not being considerate of each other’s specific nutritional needs has implications beyond the waistline,” she said.


“Men need more of the different B vitamins than women but their knowledge of these vitamins, and where to get them, is also very low.”

Gender stereotypes also play a major role in food shopping, as 90 percent of women said they would purchase meat when shopping for their partners.
