Your Type of Friends Can Affect Your Weight

It may not seem possible, but the fact is that the type of friends and family that you surround yourself with not only effects your behaviour, but also your weight.

The finding is based on a study by researchers from Harvard Medical School and the University of California, San Diego, who found that obesity spreads through social ties.

They also found that when a person piles on the pounds, the chance that people around them – friends, siblings and spouses – will also gain weight dramatically increases.

The researchers also noted that the closer two people are in a social network, the more likely it is that they will put on weight – and that’s something that doesn’t change even if they happen to live miles apart.

“What we see here is that one person’s obesity can influence numerous others to whom he or she is connected both directly and indirectly. In other words, it’s not that obese or non-obese people simply find other similar people to hang out with. Rather, there is a direct, causal relationship,” said. Nicholas Christakis, MD, PhD, a professor in Harvard Medical School’s Department of Health Care Policy.
