Why Do Men Lose Weight Faster Than Women
You and your partner both start a plan to lose weight, but you add an hour or two of exercise and take away about 500-1000 calories per day than he does. He gives up candy and while you’re celebrating your 3.8 pounds you lost in 4 weeks—he’s celebrating his 10th pound in two weeks.
WHY? Why do men lose weight faster than women?
Well, get out your white lab coats—because we’re going to Science Class!
Why Do Men Lose Weight Faster Than Women: Metabolism
First, men and women are built differently. Just like we learned about why women have cellulite and most men don’t here.
Men also have a faster metabolism. So fast they typically lose weight twice as fast as women and three times as much fat. *insert angry beady eyes here*
However, men’s adaptations eventually plateau and women can catch up as long as they stick to their plan for at least 6 months.
Why Do Men Lose Weight Faster Than Women: Hormones
You’ve heard muscle burns fat, right? Well, men have more of it and because of that they burn more calories per day. That’s because they have 10x more testosterone than women. Testosterone boosts protein synthesis which builds muscle, which creates a leaner body.
While they’re pumping out testosterone and more muscles, women have ESTROGEN.
Estrogen is a fat hoarder and makes it difficult to lose weight because they don’t burn our energy as efficiently after eating like men do.
Why Do Men Lose Weight Faster Than Women: Control
Maybe we should say sabotaging brains on this one.
To sum it up, women’s brains don’t listen.
One study showed when women are confronted with their favorite ‘bad foods’ like pizza and other simple greasy carbs—they cannot turn off their cravings like men can. The study also linked this inability to control food attraction to emotional and stress eating.
There you have it, top three reasons why men lose weight faster than women; Metabolism, brain and hormones.
So when they said girls are made with “sugar and spice and everything nice” they really meant-biochemical reactions that hold onto fat, hormones that hold onto fat’s fat, and bratty brains.
The good news is you don’t have to settle.
