“Lose-Lose” Together!

PositiveTips

In a poster session (T-OR-2014) at ObesityWeek 2016 Amy Gorin, PhD reported her team found when one spouse lost weight the other one frequently did, too! Participants were randomized to Weight Watchers or a self-guided program to lose weight. Both participants and untreated spouses experienced significant weight loss at the 3 and 6 month milestones. 

PositiveTip: Work together to lose weight, improve risks, and support your health--and spouse.
