But you females have a harder time than us males losing weight
And – in my opinion – a part of this is due to:
1) You’re more likely to think that you need to just run on a treadmill to lose weight as opposed to resistance based exercise
2) You’re scared of eating too much protein and fat just in case you get ‘too muscley’ (I’ve been trying for years to get ‘too muscle’…I’ve now given up!)
But another KEY reason is because:
Females are built to prolong the human race.
^^^I only learn this a few months ago when I found out that my wife was pregnant.
So to prolong the human race and reproduce, females are built for survival.
Hence, you have an easier time storing body fat
when you diet and / or eat less / move more
your body responds more quickly than a males body would with regards to:
* Making you feel hungry
* Making you subconsciously move less
* Making you feel deprived and low in energy / be in a bad mood
Of course, this happens to males as well.
But to a lesser extent (evil laugh)
Males also burn more calories (because we are generally bigger and have more muscle) which means females have to exercise for longer to do burn the same number of calories (another evil laugh…)
Now, before you pick up your ithing, throw it at the wall and head for the fridge…
Just consider that there is a ton of variance within this.
The number of calories you burn when exercising, dieting or resting could vary by 100 calories compared to your friend who lost more weight than you ‘doing the same damn diet’.
And it’s why a big part of my philosophy is building your diet from the bottom up to help you understand how you respond to different amounts and types of food and exercise over time to blunt these effects, curb your hunger and get you into you feeling more confident in your favourite clothes.
Now, on top of this, the menstrual cycle and the menopause also play a role here.
For example, you may crave more carbs in your pre-menstrual phase.
But in actual fact…
Your ability to handle carbs during this phase may actually be decreased, making you prone to store more fat if you overeat them
Your energy and recovery may also be hampered.
And these are just some of the tactics I talked about in this weeks VIP seminar (which you can get access to by enrolling on my Fit For Life Body Transformation Programme):
‘Why women have it harder when trying to lose weight and what you can do about it’
