Love Me Slender
How Smart Couples Team up to Lose Weight, Exercise More, and Stay Healthy TogetherBook - 2014
Many couples find themselves gaining weight as they settle into a relationship, but some couples manage to buck this trend. They exercise (together or separately), they support each other's healthy eating habits, and their relationships are stronger as a result. What are their secrets? It turns out that many of us are ignoring the most powerful tool we have to help us get healthier and stay healthier--our spouse or significant other. For more than twenty years, Drs. Thomas Bradbury and Benjamin Karney, codirectors of the Relation¡ ship Institute at UCLA, have been studying how couples communicate around these issues, wit¡ nessing firsthand how partners can help (and hinder) one another's progress toward better health. Here, they identify the specific principles that successful couples use in their quest to improve their health.--From publisher description.
