The Truth about Weight Loss in Men vs Women

Does your hubby seem to be dropping the pounds faster than you? Here are weight loss solutions that will get the pounds moving

Imagine working your butt off (literally and figuratively) for weeks or months, only to see little progress, while your husband shows off his tummy getting smaller week by week. How frustrating!

It’s not just you. Studies found that, yes, men do lose weight faster than women and it’s all because of our different physiologies.

A study published in the Diabetes, Obesity, and Metabolism journal found that men lost 16% more weight than women. How? Men have more lean body mass and more muscle tissue, which burns more calories. They also have a higher metabolic rate. Women have 6 to 11% more body fat than men on average, even when they consume fewer calories.

Another key difference is in the types of fat stored. Both men and women store visceral fat (which lies deep within the abdominal organs) and subcutaneous fat (the pinchable fat just under the skin). However, it is more typical for men to gain weight in the belly, where visceral fat is. Losing that visceral fat improves their metabolic rate, helping burn more calories. It also makes the weight loss more visible and therefore appears “more successful.”

Women, on the other hand, typically have more subcutaneous fat, particularly in problem areas like the hips, thighs, and butt. Because these fat stores are more spread out in different areas, the weight loss is not always apparent. Also, losing subcutaneous fat does not improve their metabolic risk factors because this type of fat is not metabolically active.

So are women just doomed to struggle with weight forever? Of course not! At the end of the day, losing weight can be a challenge for anyone.
