    It is true and the reason is that an average guy burns 500 calories a day more than an average girl, therefore over an average week a guy would lose around 1 pound more than a girl as it takes 3500 calories used to get rid of a pound of fat and guys burn 500 more a day and hence 3500 more a week.

    I always thought it had more to do with totm .I lose a steady amount then totm comes and i stay the same ,so is the reason that women are more prone to water retension .Also in that week i have the worst hunger pangs so tend to have zero coke or aam do men get the same cravings .

    I always thought it was because proportionally, men have more muscle than women and that means they burn fat quicker...or am I imagining it?
