This is a little different than normal but the question seems to always come up as to whether it is easier for men to lose weight. Honestly I have given this much thought and don’t find that to be the case. Of course there are going to be people to agree and other that disagree but it’s something I must address.
You see I personally think that men are just simply fueled more to lose weight and have a stronger desire than most women to be in shape. Does this mean that women don’t want to be in shape and have sexy bodies? The answer is NO, but when you look at all the reasons men end up losing weight and actually keeping it off there is a big difference.
A Man’s #1 Reason for Losing Weight – WOMEN!
Most men I think will probably agree that nothing makes them want to lose weight and get a great body like a woman. That’s right men want to look great so that women will think he’s sexy and it makes his confidence that much higher. The fact is that almost everything men do in some regards is to gain some type of recognition from women. It’s just how we are built mentally!
From the cars we drive, the clothes we wear, and even the places we go are usually with one thing in mind and that’s to find that beautiful attractive woman. For women on the other hand it’s not really the same. It’s about how they feel and though they want to look sexy they are not going to go to the gym and kill themselves just to look good for men.
We Enjoy Things Most Women Consider Working Out
Let’s think about this for a moment. Most women consider hanging out shopping, going to the movies, and having lunch with friends fun. However a lot of women consider exercising and running to be strictly forms of working out and a weight loss process. What you will find with men on the other hand is because of our competitive nature we play basketball, football, volleyball, and things of the like.
Though these things are fun men tend to spend hours outdoors doing some type of activity and thus are burning more calories. I’m not saying that women don’t but what you will find is that the males and females that go surfing, play volleyball, football, skating, and jog for fun tend to be in better shape.
Many women consider anything that makes them sweat to be something that should be considered a workout. And if she is already going to the gym why should she be working out again when she could be having fun doing something else?
This is Just Part 1 of the Post
Sorry but I don’t want this to be entirely too long so I am breaking this into 2 separate posts. Plus I want to hear what others think and this may help me write up the second part of my article. I really want to get your input on this.
I wrote this post on my experiences with friends, clients, and even the interaction I have with my wife when it comes to her working out and staying in shape. Feel free to give you input comments are always welcome. Also look out for the FREE e-book that I should be offering soon to my site visitors.
