10 Reasons Why Nigerian Men Have Pot Belly After Marriage


Someone asked me that "what are the reasons why most men have pot belly after marriage" and i believe this is a common problem among men that even average weight guys suddenly become pot bellied after some years in Marriage.

When i see most Nigerian with pot belly, i see reasons that its not actually their fault because many eat poorly and they lack exercise. I also did my research and concluded that some of the reason for big tummy for men after marriage includes;

1. Beer Intake: One of the reasons why some Nigerian men have big belly after marriage is due to the fact many of these men enjoy drinking beer and alcohol. Beer and alcohol are drugs and the end product of such is sugar which is converted to fat as glycogen. This causes weight gain around the tummy region and it causes pot belly which usually occur after marriage.

2. Excess Carbohydrate: Another factor that cause a pot belly in men after marriage is poor diet plan which results from excessive consumption of native carbohydrate foods which are high in calories. Examples includes yam, pounded yam, goat meat, eba, amala, bread,etc. All these makes fat to be stored around the stomach region and result to pot belly.

3. Lack of Exercise: Most Nigerian men gain weight after marriage because of lack of exercise that they usually do before they got married. Nigerian Guys or men usually don't do exercise like walking,running, jogging, skipping, and other cardio but to drive round using their cars or bikes which will make them add more weight especially in the tummy.

4. Its Natural: Its a belief in Nigeria that men will have a big tummy after being fed well by their wives during marriage and if a man was still maintaining his slim weight, people will believe hes not been well fed or hes broke. All these might are lies and they are not real. In order to avoid these, you need to do some dieting and exercise often

5. Too Much Food: Many Nigerian men eat too much food like carbohydrate and fatty foods, fried foods, fried meat and many more which later results to pot belly for them. They fail to feed on fiber, fruits with some exercise to maintain their weight.

6. Late Night Food: One of the reasons and factors that causes excess weight gain in the tummy for most Nigerian men is that they eat late at night due to work, hard work, traffic and many more. All these are not healthy because they store fat around the stomach that causes pot belly.

8. Stress: When the body of a man is stressed up with so much hard-work and not time for good balance diet and exercise but work work and work, the body experience stress and add more weight.

10. High Calories Diet: Another factor that cause pot belly for Nigerian men when married is the fact that they eat more high calorie foods. High calorie foods are sugar, yam,bread,cassava, doughnuts, eba and snacks generally.

These are reasons why some Nigerian men gain weight after marriage and lose their six packs body shapes. Apart from losing shape, pot belly is too risky for any man because it leads to sickness like high blood pressure, hypertension, death, diabetes etc. Thanks for reading

10 Reasons Why Some Nigerian Ladies Gain Weight After Marriage


I was at a party and many of my old friends in school were in attendance, i notice i could only recognize the guys among the friends with little or no changes in stature but i couldn't recognize the ladies because many of them had gained so much weight and fat due to marriage.

I know notice that many Nigerian ladies as well as their African counterpart add more weight after marriage. My sister was very slim before marriage and now, she has added so much weight due to marriage. I did my research and concluded that there reasons and factors that causes that. Some which includes;

1. Child Bearing: One of the reasons why so many Nigerian ladies get out of shape after marriage is due to child bearing. By the time they start giving birth to children, the body secretes hormones that causes weight gain and it stores fat in their body and many of these fat can be very difficult to lose especially she had a baby at hand that she gives milk

2. Too Much Starch: Many of these Nigerians ladies do not have a diet plan that helps them keep their shape instead they feed of excess starch foods. Some prefers to eat yam, eba, amala, bread, meat pie, snacks all which contains high calories and makes them gain weight.

3. Lack of Exercise: Many of Nigerian ladies gain weight after marriage because of lack of exercise. Many ladies after marriage will not want to walk either long or short distance, they will want to drive around using their husband cars or personal cars and many wouldn't want to run or do some cardio exercise to lose weight. These are some of the reasons some of them add weight beyond expectation.

4. Late Marriage: One of the things that cause weight gain and makes these Nigerian ladies go out of shape is that many don't get married at early age between 18 to 24yrs and some will prefer to work and get married at late 30s and 40s. This will tell on the body and cause weight gain.

5. Its Natural: Some people claim its natural in marriage which i don't believe in such. I still ask an aunt of mine and she told me that its natural but the woman or lady will be the one to do things to avoid such weight gain by eating dieting and exercise.

6. Too Much Food: Many Nigerian ladies eat too much food like carbohydrate and fatty foods, fried foods, fried meat and many more. All these are things that some of these ladies do that makes them get out of shape through excess weight gain.

7. Late Night Food: One of the reasons and factors that causes excess weight gain in women and which makes them lose their shape after marriage is that many of these women/ladies do eat at nights. Some prefers to weight for their husbands at late nights while some will come back late from work to eat, this usually cause slow digestion and in return, it causes weight gain.

8. Stress: Marriage is supposed to be seen as a lovely thing but our Nigerian ladies or women don't know how to plan to make it work for them. Some will want to combine their house chores, with work, with family issues, with children rearing etc which makes them get stressed up and in return they gain weight and their shape get out hand.

9. Birth Control Pills : One of the things that causes weight gain for some Nigerian ladies after marriage is frequent consumption of birth control pills. Many our ladies do not know that there's is a tendency for weight gain when they take family planning pills to control frequency of conception and childbirth. Although it may not be so for some people while it makes some gain weight and makes their shape get out of hand.

10. High Calories Diet: Another factor that cause weight gain in women after marriage is excessive consumption of high calorie foods. High calorie foods are sugar, yam,bread,cassava, doughnuts, and snacks generally.

These are reasons why some Nigerian ladies gain weight after marriage and lose their shapes. But all these can be control through dieting like eating more fiber foods, more fruits and exercising the body once in a while which i believe walking and playing with kids also does.
