Social relationships shape our lives and also our health. Your health is helped by the everyday support you receive from
family, friends, and colleagues. But there are two sides to this: your
own health gets a boost from giving support to others too.
It' s no secret that women who want to lose weight can do better with social
support. in fact, a research study reported in the 2005 Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology found that people are more successful at losing weight when they do
it with a partner who is also losing weight. Other benefits of weight
loss with a partner are a greater likelihood of sticking to your weight
loss diet plan, and then maintaining the weight you lose.
Dieting support partnering, as you can see, makes a big difference.
What would your ideal dieting buddy be like?
