Here’s another of our great Top 100 Weight Loss Tips with article 42 in this series. Now in this article, we’re going to look at one of the subjects that can be annoying in the extreme to women while making men seem more smug than they really deserve to be. It’s the age old fact of life which dogs the difference in the sexes when it cannot be denied that men lose weight faster than women.
At least that’s the general viewpoint, although individual circumstances will of course alter that very rigid statistic from person to person. But you have to remember that when all things are as equal as they can be, a man’s metabolism is generally faster than a woman’s.
Why Do Men Lose Weight Faster Than Women?
Well, women aren’t men and the opposite is equally as true. So its no good trying to get around a law of nature that is pretty unmovable! If you’re a woman, then you probably won’t like to hear that it’s been proven scientifically that men are physically designed to be able to lose weight more rapidly than women can.
It really is all down to our physiological makeup. In this sense, a woman is naturally supposed to have more body fat than a man, because she’s the one that has to carry the babies and that’s what her body is designed to do. To do that she needs more reserves to call upon in times of famine or lack of food (going back to our distant ancestors that didn’t have access to supermarkets or freezers. Caves were so prehistoric)!
Remember, this isn’t a sexist statement at all. It is the way it is, and this truth is what separates the genders from a natural point of view. As such, women really should expect to have to set completely separate weight loss goals than men and this really applies if you are working on the process of partners losing weight together. When you see the results side by side, don’t be disheartened if the man is getting ahead by seeming to stick to exactly the same diet and exercise criteria as you.
If you are really competitive, you could of course push yourself harder to tip the balance. One thing women are better at than men and that’s getting things done! Where men tend to be that little bit more lazy, you can go the extra mile they’re not prepared to go. And that’s where you can bet them at their own game!
