After marriage, there is bound to be a change in the life of both the boy and the girl, but the biggest change comes in the life of the girl. Sometimes the diet of a girl who follows a healthy diet changes completely after going to her in-laws house. New places, new people, delicious food prepared in new and different ways, not eating at the right time, etc. are many reasons, due to which gradually the weight of the girl starts increasing.
After marriage, the newly married couple is invited for lunch or dinner by their close friends and family members. This cycle continues for 1-2 years, due to which diet and fitness goals are not visible far and wide. By eating fried, spicy, oily and junk food from outside, the body gets extra calories, due to which the weight increases.
After marriage, not only the house of the girl changes, but many things also change. A girl has to face some difficulties in understanding and adjusting with new environment, new people, new relationships and new methods. Apart from this, if the girl is working, then the responsibilities of home and office increase even more, due to which she starts living under stress and her weight starts increasing.
Girls do workouts, go to the gym to keep themselves slim fit before marriage. Follows a special diet, but after marriage, this thinking of hers becomes chumantar. After marriage, the priorities of girls change in the new environment. The bride makes her routine according to her husband and in-laws, due to which she does not get time for herself. This is also one of the main reasons for weight gain.
change in hormones
Changes in hormones are also the main reason for weight gain in girls after marriage. Being active in sexual life after marriage causes emotional and hormonal changes in the body of women, due to which weight increases. Apart from this, taking birth control pills also increases weight.
lack of sleep
Functions start in the house 3-4 days before the wedding and many rituals have to be performed even after the wedding. Because of this, guests keep coming and going in the house. In the atmosphere of laughter, happiness and fun, everyone sits around the bride and groom and due to fatigue, the couple’s sleep is not complete. They have the problem of bloating, due to which the body looks bloated.
party after wedding
The round of parties of the newly married couple continues throughout the year. Sometimes the couple’s close friends invite them for lunch or dinner, and sometimes the parents and in-laws invite them. Eating high calorie food while having dinner outside increases the area of the couple’s stomach.
decrease in physical activity
In the in-laws house, the bride has to perform many rituals. Rituals like pag-phera, mouth visible and first kitchen go on for almost a month. Due to the performance of these rituals and fatigue, the physical activity of the couple is not possible at all and it takes 2-3 months after the marriage for the couple to come back to their normal routine. Because of this also there is a problem of weight gain in couples.
After marriage, it takes 2-3 months for the bride and groom to get back to their normal routine. Due to the new home and new environment, there is no schedule to do workouts and there is no chance to go to the gym. If the bride is working, then it takes a little more time to manage home, office and gym. Having dinner late at night, going to bed late, getting up late in the morning, responsibilities at home and running to office almost stops exercising. Weight gain is common in these conditions.
getting married at an older age
There are many reasons like not getting the perfect match, being ambitious towards career, great job, good package, due to which the trend of late marriage has increased these days. Nowadays there is no fixed age for marriage. A study has proved that after 30 years the metabolic rate of the body decreases, due to which the body weight increases.
