If you thought going on a diet to get that bikini body would spice up your relationship, think again.
In fact, it could have the opposite effect, according to new research from the Ohio State University.
It showed couples who diet get 'hangry' (a combination of angry and hungry) at each other and are more likely to argue.
Spouses were asked to stick needles in voodoo dolls at the end of the day to show how angry they were.
Those cutting back on food had lower sugar and energy levels and were more irritable, so took it out on the dolls more. Yikes.
Other tests involved blasting loud noises into their husband or wife's ear, choosing how long and loud they could do it for. No points for guessing who go the short end of the deal.
The study even showed that in some extreme cases, depriving yourself of food could lead to domestic violence. Now that's food for thought.
Carbs allowed and a happy marriage? Sounds like a no brainer to us.
