According to an article in the Huffington Post and the Daily Mail, leggings make you fat. Uh yea, because it can’t be the extra helping of potatoes or the deep fried pickles, it’s your leggings causing the bulge….<head slap>, duh!
Of all the ridiculous studies our there, this one has to take the cake. In the Daily Mail article, Sammy Margo who explained that everyone’s preferred stretchy pants “hold in and support the quadriceps (thigh muscles), buttocks and core muscles in your tummy, and do the job the muscles are supposed to do. As a result, the muscles are allowed to relax and switch off, so when we reveal our bodies for the first time as summer approaches, they are not as svelte or firm as they otherwise would be.”
Leggings that hold in the quadriceps, butt and tummy???? Where are these leggings and how can I get my hands on a pair?
Additionally, according to the article, we tend to hide our flaws when we wear leggings which makes us ignore them and feel less motivated.
What are you thoughts on this? Can leggings make you fat?
