Family criticizing your weight? You might add more pounds

Public Release: 19-Dec-2014
University of Waterloo

Women whose loved ones are critical of their weight tend to put on even more pounds, says a new study on the way people's comments affect our health.


The study found that women who received a higher number of what the researchers called acceptance messages about their weight saw better weight maintenance and even weight loss than their counterparts who did not receive this positive messaging from their loved ones.
