weight loss as a couple
Following the next diet for losing weigh as a couple you could easily
get rid of 3 kilograms within 7 days!

How many times have you decided to follow a new weight loss diet, but the copious meals of you partner made you to give up, before even starting? While trying to lose the overweight you need to take care of as many outside factors as possible. For example seeing someone eat sweets in front of you is not a good ambiance for a proper weight loss program. The worst situation is in a couple, as one of the members wants to follow a diet while the other member doesn’t need to do it and tempts his other half to eat not allowed foods.

In fact recent studies have proved that if a member of a couple is overweight, there is the bigger chance that he will bring his half to add extra kilograms than the other way around.
If your partner is involved in the same fight with the kilograms you can join forces and you will obtain your weight loss goal easier. In the next part of this article I will share with you a weight loss diet that can be followed together in a couple.

Before you start to keep the diet, you should take care to the next things:
- You shouldn’t eat the same food quantities. Generally, men need to consume more calories as women do. As a general rule you should stick to 2700 calories a day for a man and 2000 calories a day for a woman. So, the female part of the couple should eat 2/3 from a portion eaten by her partner.
- Men should renounce at the unhealthy eating habits. The majority of men eat albumins, carbohydrates, many fats and less fruits and vegetables. Because of that, the female’s role is to convince her other half to quit these bad habits and encourage him to eat more fruits and vegetables.
- Women must educate themselves to avoid eating between meals. Usually, females have the habit to eat between meals and they like to ingest sweets especially, a lot of sweets. Many times, they skip over the breakfast, because they don’t have appetite or they haven’t got the time. In this situation, the males should watch out of their halves and to help them to avoid eating between the main meals.

You see that both males and females have weaknesses when we speak about weight loss diets. In a couple the male and the female can easily complete themselves and help each other to reach the common goal.
