Women Beat Men in the Dieting Department!
Although men win in the metabolism department, women are way more interested in weight loss. Plus, men are horrible at starting diets and sticking to them.
Just think about the topics of conversations women tend to have: “I need to lose weight.” “I used to be so thin back then.” “I can’t eat that...never mind, I’ll just have one bite.”
All of this negative self-talk, along with pressure and media messages, pushes women to hop on the latest diet train that comes along.
The good news for the fairer sex? By eating well and exercising a few times a week, women can even up the metabolic odds.
Ultimately, genes don’t help men fit in the same jeans forever. High levels of motivation and commitment to dieting help women stay healthy in later years when hormones from menopause become her own worst enemy.
For men and women, metabolism slows down with age. So if we’re not careful about what we eat, weight can easily catch up to us.
