Why does it seem easier for men to lose weight? It may be all in our heads.
1. Women simply obsess about food more. According to a recent survey, “25% of women think about food every half-hour, only 10% think about sex that often. When it comes to men, 5% think about sex once a minute and 36% find their minds wandering to it every 30 minutes.”
2. Women tend to relate emotionally to food while men do not. The book Conquering Heart Attack & Stroke references a brain-scan study in which “researchers flashed tempting foods in front of men and women who hadn’t eaten for a day, then told them to fight their hunger. The men’s brains showed far less activity in areas of emotional regulation, memory, and motivation than the women’s – as if men were more easily able to ‘switch off’ their cravings for favorite foods, which included fried chicken, lasagna, ice cream, and pizza.”

3. To top it all off, men also have faster metabolisms. According to Weight Watchers, “Research has found that on average the metabolism of a man is 5 to 10 percent higher than that of a woman of the same weight and height.”
