Couples who decide to get healthy together are more likely to be successful, suggests a new study.

一项新研究显示,决心一同为健康而努力的夫妻,成功的可能性更大。

Researchers found people are more successful in taking up healthy habits if their partner makes positive changes too.

研究者发现,假如配偶也能积极改变,大家能更成功地形成健康的习惯。

Scientists at University College London (UCL) looked at how likely people were to quit smoking or lose weight in relation to what their partner did.

英国伦敦大学学院(ULC)的科学家们察看了大家在戒烟和减肥等问题上的表现,并研究了这类表现与配偶行为之间的关联。

不要再孤军奋战了,男女搭配减肥不累!

The findings, published in the journal Internal Medicine, show that people were more successful in swapping bad habits for good ones if their partner made a change as well.

该研究结果发表在《内科杂志》上。研究显示,假如配偶也能有所改变,大家就更容易戒掉不好的习惯,培养好习惯。

Among women who smoked, 50 percent managed to quit if their partner gave up smoking too at the same time, compared with 17 percent of women whose partners were already non-smokers, and eight per cent of those whose partners were regular smokers.

女人抽烟者中,50%的女人能成功与配偶同时戒烟,17%的女人能在配偶不抽烟的状况下戒烟,而只有8%的女人能在配偶抽烟的状况下成功戒烟。

The study found that men were equally affected by their partners and were more likely to quit smoking or lose weight if their partner made the same behaviour change.

研究还发现,男士也同样会遭到配偶影响。假如配偶也在努力作出改变,他们就也大概成功戒烟或是减肥。

The research looked at 3,722 couples, either married or living together and over the age of 50.

共有3722对夫妻参与了此次研究,包含已婚和同居的配偶,也有50岁以上的人。

Study co-author Professor Jane Wardle, director of Cancer Research UK’s Health Behaviour Research Centre at UCL, said: ‘Unhealthy lifestyles are a leading cause of death from chronic disease worldwide.

研究的合作者、伦敦大学学院英国癌症研究院健康行为研究中心主任简·沃尔德教授表示:“在全世界范围内,不健康的生活方法都是致使患慢成人两性疾病致死的一个重要原因。”

‘The key lifestyle risks are smoking, excess weight, physical inactivity, poor diet, and alcohol consumption.

“日常主要的威胁就是抽烟、超重、缺少运动、不好的饮食与酗酒。”

‘Swapping bad habits for good ones can reduce the risk of disease, including cancer.’

“改掉不好的习惯,培养好习惯能减少疾病的威胁,包含癌症。”

Dr Sarah Jackson, lead author of the study at UCL, said: ‘Now is the time to make New Year’s resolutions to quit smoking, take exercise, or lose weight.

萨拉·杰克森博士是伦敦大学学院这项研究的首席作者,他说:“是时候拟定新年目的了,无论是戒烟、参加训练,或是减肥。”

‘And doing it with your partner increases your chances of success.’

“别忘了拉上你的配偶,增加你成功的机会!”
