Contagious Fat

… only 22 days until the book release!



The results are in, and your friends can, in fact, make you fat.  Allow me to elaborate…

A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine assessed the likeliness of gaining weight based on the company you keep.  According to the article, if your friends, siblings or spouse become obese, the chances of you following are somewhere between 37% and 57%.

My initial thought is that this is likely a result of the activities, or lack thereof, that you do together.  I’d like to think that you’re less apt to find this situation between workout buddies than you would with a group that loves food.  Personally, I’d like to see a reverse study to find out if fitness can also be contagious.  Until then, try to be open to new experiences and activities, stay active and don’t let your friends weigh you down!
