A University of Minnesota study found that having a baby is bad for your health. They followed 1500 people from high school to their mid-20’s and found that after they had kids, the baby took up so much of their time, the men got an average of 90 minutes less exercise per week than their childless counterparts. It was worse for women: They got an hour’s less exercise per week, consumed more sugary sodas and saturated fats, ate 400 more calories a week and had a higher body mass index that the women who didn’t have kids.
- The good news is, by the time your health totally deteriorates, your kids will be old enough to take care of you! (Right… good luck with that!)
- Of course the mom’s ate more calories! Somebody’s got to eat all the crusts cut off the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches!
- If dragging yourself out of bed at 3a.m. to change a loaded diaper isn’t exercise, I don’t know what is.
