The Divorce Diet

The Divorce Diet

Need to lose weight fast? Want those stubborn pounds to fall off already? Just go on the divorce diet, and watch your fat disappear!

Obviously no one in their right mind would really recommend such a diet, but testimonials and statistics show that divorce makes some people lose weight at an alarming rate. Why? One theory is that when you experience a traumatic event, such as getting divorced, you tend to burn more calories and eat less without even realizing it. People confess to literally forgetting to eat.

Of course, the opposite can be true too. While some are so in shock that they forget to eat, others turn to food for comfort and gain weight just as fast as others lose. And it’s not just women. Men have drastic weight reactions to divorce as well, but the more dire cases are common among women. For example, women who had eating disorders in their teen or early adult years might fall back into old habits because while they may not be able to control their personal life, they can control what and when they eat.

While the divorce diet can have extreme effects, some experts say that if it’s short-lived, it’s harmless. But is it really? Going through a divorce is a difficult change for everyone involved, and whether it’s unintentional or not, it’s not OK to neglect your health. Why not let a difficult change inspire you to take the best care of yourself possible so that you are more mentally and physically capable to meet your challenge head on? [The Dallas Morning News]

Hi everyone! (How to Get My Ex Back).
I'm so excited my husband is back after he have left me for another woman.
My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 24 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.

I have lost alot of weight, due to my divorce. Finding out that your whole world has been destroyed can consume someone so much that food is the last thing on your mind!

I lost a lot of weight when I left my first husband. I think the only reason was that I was a single mom and had to be responsible for everything. I was also out and about much more.
