    Just wanted to rant for a bit, so please bear with me.

    Me and boyfriend are on SW, I do ALL the planning, I cook ALL the food, I shop for the food and he does....... well nothing to contribute.

    So whats happens on weigh day...... he loses 2 pounds and I STS. The week before I lost 2 pounds and he lost 5 pounds!..... ARGH!!!

    Why do men lose weight more than women :(...

    Rant over.... thanks!! :p

    Basically because they're not women. Your body is programmed to try and hold onto fat for childbearing - it's your hormones, nothing you can do about it. So it's harder for women to lose than men because you are fighting against nature.

    Awww huni!!! Sorry, that's a bit pants!! It's hard isnt it, you want to be supportive of each other but it's nice to lose more than them sometimes too!! Esp as you seem to be puttin in all of the effort!

    Your week will come hun, keep your chin up! xx

    1. Men have more muscle. This allows them to burn more calories, even when at rest.
    2. Women are predisposed to store and retain fat. Women have higher levels of estrogen, a hormone that works works to keep the fat on a woman's body so it's easier for her to get pregnant. That means women have to work harder to lose weight at the same rate as men.
    3. Men's bodies respond more quickly to exercise. Women's bodies, meanwhile, actually go into a sort of starvation mode, slowing the metabolism to hang onto more fat.
    4. Women may have a lower tolerance for exercise. Women have smaller lung capacity than men, which can make women feel as though they are working harder than men even if the women are working at the same level. This can also make exercise feel harder in the heat or high humidity.
