London, February 4: A new study has revealed that women lose up to a stone after being dumped by their partners.
The survey, which was conducted by diet firm Forza Supplements, found that women lose an average of 5lbs in the first month after being dumped and if they stay single for a year after the break-up of a long-term relationship they are likely to be at least a stone lighter, the Daily Express reported.
According to the survey, 46 per cent out of 1,000 respondents said that they lost weight due to "emotional upheaval" in their breakups, which caused a drop in their appetites.
47 per cent of women said that they shifted weight because they wanted to look more attractive now they were back to singlehood and 77 per cent of those polled said that they tend to be slimmer when they were single.
The study found that women who initiate the split tend to lose less weight and relationship experts have claimed that the reason for this is because women tend to plan the end of a long-term relationship for months beforehand. (ANI)
