Basically, it just means that in that study, EVERY dad having a girl put on weight, but ONLY 5 dads having boys did. They don't know why. My guess might be that women for some reason (which would also need to be explained) select fattier/higher calories foods while pregnant, and their husbands are eating with them? Or perhaps they aren't feeling as well or are more tired than boy pregnancies, so the whole family is staying home more and not as active? I really don't know, but it's fascinating data and does make you wonder what causes these things.
