Men weight loss vs Women weight loss
I would really like to know if men lose weight easier than women. I am on a strict eating plan from a dietician and am attending 4-5 weekly training sessions with a personal trainer. My husband has been following same but larger portion eating plan and NO excercise, but he has lost more weight than I have.

Dear Christie
Alas, it is true that men usually have an unfair advantage over women when it comes to losing weight! They lose more weight and at a faster rate with less effort. I actually wrote an article on this subject a few weeks ago. Click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then do a Search for the article "DO MEN HAVE AN ADVANTAGE WHEN IT COMES TO LOSING WEIGHT?".
