The reason her results are questionable is because she only surveyed married couples from her local gym. Not only is her data not randomly selected, but the sample also isn't representative of the population. Extrapolating her results to the entire population of married couples would imply that all married couples go to the gym, or at least have the same dietary habits as married couples from her local gym.
