Men And Junk Food!



Women who try to improve their husbands’ diets merely drive them to eat junk food when they’re away from home, a study has found.

Researchers said men rarely complain about healthy meals cooked by their partner, and instead bite their tongue to maintain a happy domestic life. Knowing that they can just nip out for a quick McDonalds’ or the like latter on or at least the next day at lunch time.

Experts say men often head for a ‘landslide of food’ when their wife isn’t looking and they don’t think there is anything wrong in doing that.  They see it as they have eaten a healthy meal and the junk food is just a snack.

More men on healthier diets spend their lunch times in the pie shop, getting fish and chips and going to McDonalds than those who are not on a health diet at home say researchers.

The researchers, from the University of Michigan in the US, interviewed 83 men and found that most wives failed to consult them when introducing healthier meals.

The team said discussing dietary changes as a couple made husbands more likely to follow their new nutritional regime.

“So ladies don’t forget to tell your man if you decided to put him on a healthy diet, you don’t want all your hard work going to waste by lunch time” says Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire.
