Why is it easier for men to lose weight than women?

Aug 20, 2014

There are a few different reasons why men can lose weight more easily than women. One of these reasons is because men naturally carry more muscle and tend to have less body fat than women. Muscle is more metabolically active than fat which enables men to burn more calories throughout the day than women. This may not seem like a huge difference, but day after day it can really add up. While it is understandable that many woman do not want to "bulk up", the weight loss benefits of carrying a little more muscle is a great reason to incorporate strength training into all fitness programs. -Keith
