Your pants may be making you fat!

It’s true! Many men’s pants—women’s too, I’m told—have an expandable waist with up to 2–3″ of stretch for “comfort” or to “move with you.” Move with you? Are you James Bond?

What this really means is that these pants allow you to expand your waist and still wear the same size pants. That way you can still tell yourself that you wear the same pants size you did in college.

Read more about this, and other ways we miss signals that we are gaining weight, in my Health & Fitness column in the Aiken Standard today.

Maybe we have been asking the wrong question. Instead of, “Do these pants make me look fat?” we should ask “Will these pants actually make me fat?”

These pants WILL make you fat!

“Comfort” must be pants-code for fat!
