Here’s a new weight loss health tips for you. There is an easy method for you who are currently trying to lose weight. According to a recent study, people who are trying to lose weight should hang out more often with thin people.
The study, published in the Obesity journal revealed that people who want to lose weight, actually tend to have friends who are fat.
Researchers asked a group of people to describe four people close to them. Then they tracked the social network. As a result, their body mass change during the year.

“There are many reasons why weight is contagious, especially in social networks,” said study author and assistant professor of sociology at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, Matthew Andersson, PhD, as reported by the Times of India.
