Gaining weight, as in, unhealthy fat is always a regretful experience. There is always something to blame for that though, such as age, genetics, vices, but almost always, food. So when one woman gained so much weight as to fracture her back, you can bet that it’s the food which caused that, because that’s what she blames, along with her husband’s ‘good cooking’ skills.
What makes the incident all the more worrying is that the said woman was only in her 20s. She was an unnamed local from Heilongjiang province in China. The woman was recently admitted and confined to a hospital after suffering from a slipped disc in her lower back spine area. When asked by the local media what caused such an injury, she said:
“My husband’s cooking is very good, and he only cooked meat dishes [for the last two years]. I was about 60 to 65 kilograms (132 to 143 lbs) before we got married, but now I’m 100 kilograms (220 lbs) … I gained nearly 40 kilograms (88 lbs) in two years.”
Hence, after two years of “good cooking” from her husband, the woman gradually became unable to walk because her legs could not bear her weight. This caused her pain, the same goes with prolonged sitting while at work. She also added that “I couldn’t straighten my back anymore… I needed to squat and rest every three or five steps I took.”
That isn’t to say that the anonymous woman never tried to do something about her weight. In fact, she claimed that she actually tried to lose weight but unfortunately, her husband kept distracting her with his good cooking and delicious meals, “Every time I told my husband I should lose weight, he cooked more good food for me.” Avoid marrying chefs and foodies, folks.
