After a couple has been together for a while, the two people tend to let loose and are not as body conscious as before. Unfortunately, this can lead to some noticeable weight gain and health problems down the road. If you’ve noticed your partner putting on some extra pounds lately, try these tips to keep your partner healthy.

1. Eliminate the junk food. It becomes very easy to snack at night while watching television, especially when the house is filled with junk. To be helpful, a spouse should throw out all of the bad foods and replace them with healthier options. Whole grain crackers or fruit will be a better choice.

Supper may be another time to cut down on fat and calories. Serving smaller portions and using fresh vegetables in a meal will make things healthier. This will make things better for both husband and wife.

2. Push for a yearly physical. Even though most men hate visiting the doctor, a wife should make sure that her husband attends an annual doctor’s visit. This will help to detect problems before they become severe. It is also a good way to help a man keep problems like high blood pressure and diabetes under control.

A great way to make sure that a man is being seen by a doctor without feeling pressure is to make dual appointments. Both husband and wife can schedule a visit at the same time. When health is seen an a joint venture, it does not seem as scary.

3. Try hormone replacement. As a man ages, hormones may become imbalanced. When hormones drop too low, a person may gain weight. This is why it is important to get them back into balance. A man may need to take certain supplements or testosterone injections.

4. Get moving. Exercise is a great way to get healthier. Instead of joining gym, partners can spend some time taking an evening walk together. It may also be nice to try a new hobby like ballroom dancing. Without much pressure, the body will get moving. This will burn calories and also boost the mood.
