Are men more likely to gain weight after they lose their job? Research shows that this may actually be true. The studies show that the stress of losing a job can cause weight gain. Men who are not married at the time that they lose their job are more vulnerable to gaining weight because they do not have a spouse that can provide financial and emotional support. This increases worry and tension and causes men to do activities that result in weight gain. If you have recently lost your job, make sure you are staying healthy and fit. Gaining too much weight too fast can be extremely taxing on your health. Strive to find a new job and try not to stress. Think positive and stay healthy.
