Forget diets, forget working out and starving yourself. A new study suggest that men who are in relationships with chubby women tend to smile more.
The study further shows that chubby women are better at dealing with problems than men who are in relationships with thin women. The regular Kenyan woman is chubby but the hype to lose weight and be skinny has been on the rise due to westernisation.
Extreme diets have led to health complications and even death.
The Argentinian newspaper Buevo Diario reports on the findings from the research conducted by Dr Filemón Alvarado and Dr Edgardo Morales at UNAM’s department of psychology.
According to their research, chubby women make their men ten times as happy as thin women. And we all know that happy people live longer. The study also indicated that chubby women are better at anticipating their partner’s needs.
But keeping fit isn’t bad. And Kenyan fitness experts such as Jane Mukami, who runs 21 Days Of Change, Chiki who has a show Dance with Chiki, Esther Dindi who runs Fit Sistaz and many other personal trainers, inspire us to be fit.
But going by this recent study, maybe those few extra pounds aren’t fat – they’re love and tenderness! More and more celebrities are making the effort to lose weight such as Big Ted who recently opened up about his struggle with weight before he lost 70 kgs from his initial 168 kgs.
Female musician Nazizi Hirji is also among local celebrities who have lost a drastic amount of weight over time bringing her sexy back. She went through a complete nutrition change and incorporated workouts .
Talia Oyando, Size 8 reborn, and Kalyeke Mumo have also been tagged along in this fitness journey and we commend them for wanting to keep fit.
