I think this is psychology. Once you hit a certain age the motivation to get down to fighting weight is somewhat diminished. When I got divorced I became lean and attractive right quick and later when I broke up with my girlfriend I went from 220 to 190 in 6 months. This is anecdotal of course, but I don't think I'm the only person who gets lean and fit when single and porks out a bit when married or some analogue thereof.
