People more likely to adopt healthy lifestyle if partner does as well
People more likely to adopt healthy lifestyle if partner does as well (January 23, 2015 - Insidermedicine) From the UK - People are more likely to adopt a healthy lifestyle if their partner does as well, according to a report published in JAMA Internal Medicine. Researchers studied nearly 4,000 couples who had been married or living together, and were over the age of 50. Results showed that 50% of women managed to quit smoking if their partner did at the same time, while only 17% managed to quit if their partners were non-smoking and 8% for those whose partners continued smoking. Men were also more likely to quit smoking, get active, or lose weight if their partner had adopted the same lifestyle change.
