At what point does the average woman throw her arms up and say, "That's IT", and start hitting the refrigerator more times that they do the gym?Apparently women are prone to gain the most pounds at around the age of 38.

There are numerous factors as to why this happens. Most likely it is due to the job and home responsibilities hitting their highest productivity levels....causing most to scrap any workout plans.

Another reason is likely due to women having children and as a result tend to gain more in their late 30's. Kids cause stress, stress causes eating in most cases.

As for men? The fellas tend to gain weight around 44 years of age.
