A 2018 study published in the journal Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism followed 2,224 overweight adults on low-calorie diets for eight weeks and found men lost 16% more weight than women. In addition to gender differences in weight loss, the researchers found men experienced larger differences in fat mass and. The simple truth is that men are larger and have more muscle than women due to the hormone testosterone.

They are genetically designed to have a higher percentage of muscle and less fat which. Do Men Lose Weight Faster Than Women? A recent study published in Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism looked into the connection between weight loss and gender, and the findings confirmed what was happening in my house: During an eight-week period in which 2,000 adults followed a low-calorie diet, men lost 26 pounds on average, compared to 22 pounds on average for women. It might feel unfair that men shed weight faster and more easily than women, and that men are able to eat more food without gaining weight, but consider this: American women have five years more life expectancy than men, largely due to rates of heart issues.

23,24. It is indeed true that men lose weight faster, at first. The subtle differences between male weight loss and female weight loss come down to the physiology of both men and women.

Men have an easier time burning calories and, subsequently, losing weight because they tend to have the height, weight, and muscle-to-fat ratio advantage over women. Now, a new study delves into differences that take place when men and women diet — and confirms that, yes, men do lose weight faster. In the. According to this study, yes men did lose weight faster than women. However, a percentage of weight loss was attributed to losing fat free mass.

The verdict: Men do lose weight faster than women, at first Men tend to have more lean muscle tissue, which burns more calories than body fat, even during rest.

And when men and women.

Of course, as you lose weight it becomes increasingly harder to lose more as time goes on (especially in the general population), meaning that this old-school generalization actually tends to over-promise weight loss.

Despite this limitation, the available data suggests that exercise has a more favorable impact on the release of appetite-regulating hormones in men compared with women and this can help to explain why exercise is a more successful strategy for weight loss in men (Donnelly et al. 2003).

  • So glad I found this channel!! Thank you to @Matt D’Avella!
    Jordan, your content has kept me motivated and has been SUPER helpful. I’ve been tracking my weight & body composition breakdown everyday, and was happy to see your video weight fluctuation. Mine was peaking and valleying over the past 6 months, but it is ultimately going down. Thank you for your content and bringing simplicity back to health and fitness!

  • Despite the exercises may be designed for men, being a woman who likes men I prefer to look at your videos, also, you provide us with an explanation and your exercises are not the same as in other pages, which makes you unique and original. How about your AthleanXX channel taking notes from your presentation???

  • I got on the scale today after two weeks off the gym and my healthy eating and thank goodness I watched this after. I’d been on vacation, gotten a cold and then my period and it was way up. But I needed the reminder that it is not fat gain so not to beat myself up but also not to celebrate too much when it drops after getting back on track.

  • Are beans (frijoles for my spanish speakers) considered fibrous carbs? I usually eat black beans, so I wanted to know if that counts since it is a big part of my eating lifestyle.

  • For evryone interested; for every actively burned 3200-3600 Calories, you WILL lose about 0.5KG of body fat, this was proven by science and I started keeping track of what I burned. For me every 3500 Calories (approx 4-5 days excluding rest days) I lose 0.5 KG if body fat (about 1.2KG in total weight) without a real diet. Just take out the snacks all day long and start drinking water (and a glass of coffee (MAX) is also fine) and try to burn 3200-3600 Calories actively a week. You can thank me later.

  • Do the benefits from these veggies (broccoli, mushrooms etc) stay even when they’re cooked or do they lose the nutrients after being cooked?

  • Birth control got me fucked up. I used to be around 123 lbs, but after getting on it I went up to 150 lbs. I got off of it but it’s been a struggle to lose the weight. I’m down to 143 still have a way to go

  • because men work physically harder than women women usually have a lot easier job they don’t have to lift anything over usually 10 pounds

  • watching this whilst drinking coca cola makes me feel bad and want to change my lifestyle, I’m not extremely overweight but would just like to be more healthy overal. I just find it realy hard to find out what to eat exactly what contains the right nutritions and get a right balance.

  • I wanted to let you know i stepped on the scale and it went up this AM and instead of hating myself and quitting or starving myself today I heard your voice….”hmm extra sodium yesterday? Did you go to the bathroom yesterday? I wonder what pattern your fluctuation will fall into…” and then I wrote down my number and moved on. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!

  • I think this guy Jeff is way smarter than I am on the subject of exercise BUT I DISAGREE that for men, lifting weights is better than running for fat loss. There comes a point where a guy canNOT naturally get any stronger or build any more muscle. I’ve been lifting for 30 years and have had the same muscle size and strength for the last 26 of those years. The only way I can personally get rid of love handles and bring out a six pack is by cutting sugar and running. If there is a better way, I’m all ears.

  • I’m down 17.4 lbs, 2.4 lbs away from my second goal. I’ve done so many burpees I now call them pukies. It seems relentless to be sure but that is when I ask myself “How bad do you want this”.

  • #sortinghatsquad If I had something salty the day before I don’t bother to weigh until I lose the bloat. It messes with my head lol

  • Hi Jeff. Can you talk more about androgen? That is what makes me fat (among other horrifying effects). Somewhere between 5% and 10% of women have my condition, so you could be helping more people than you might think if you came up with a PCOS program rather than just the one program for women and a sprawl of others that seem like they are pretty much aimed at dudes. Some girls are like 400+ pounds because of PCOS… It’s very real. I’d be a very willing (even grateful) guinea pig if you needed someone to try something like that out.

    Just my thoughts, though. I enjoy Inferno Shred so far.

  • Its eazy to be woman. They store fucking everything in their asses and we still watch and like that shit, but only thing they want to watch (abs) are fucking covered with fucking 3+ inches of fat. Sad true��, but i train every day and got abs so im good��

  • I am a woman but I predominantly store fat on my abs and almost nothing on my thighs or buttocks ��
    Genetics I suppose �� and my hypothyroidism ��, but that’s not an excuse to train abs more intensively ��

  • Cruciferous vegetables are great, but people need to consult their doctors/pharmacists if they are on medication. Cruciferous vegetables have a high amount of Vitamin K, which will inhibit drugs like Warfarin.

  • Here from Matt’s channel, and this video is truly very illuminating. I think I knew beforehand that a lot of the reason why I’ve never stuck to a diet or fitness regimen is a lot to do with mental hangups about my weight and appearance, but I don’t think I’ve ever realized how much negative selftalk I give myself. Thanks for this, I will keep this in mind from now on.

  • oh man i gained 10 kilos during corona virus (didnt left home for 3,5 months) and look just a bitt better than the guy on the screen…:/

  • I’m a woman I don’t store fat in my calves or lower limbs for that matter. I store it in my chest, stomach, thighs. Its different for different people. Not all women and men will store fat in the same places.

  • So is ginger, grapes, mushrooms, oysters and cruciferous vegetables good for both men and women or are some better for one sex? Basically, should women try to reduce/control estrogen production (with cruciferous vegetables) and grapes, while avoid eating too much mushrooms because it creates more estrogen?

  • I have been doing cardio for almost a year now with the intention of losing body fat you have finally opened my eyes,anyway love from nepal❤❤

  • My solution to the scale issue is to use an old fashioned balance scale, and only move the indicator in the downward direction. I do a lot of computer benchmarking and think of this as the guaranteed not to be lower weight recording method. This only works as long as I know I’m eating and exercising the way I know I should.

  • how long does it take for metabolic adaptaion to occur, i cut my calories from 2600 to 1600 because my body wasnt loosing any weight, i cant sustain this and i want to go back to 2600 but is it not a good idea, i lost weight before but regained it all back plus more, i dont want to do the same, so far i went back to 1800, should i add 100 cals a week back to 2600? has my body already adapted to low cals and i cant jump straight back to 2600

  • Simple trics to lose weight: 1. Walk half an hour a day. 2. When you serve yourself, put the salade on your plate first and of you grab a second plate fill it with salade and the third time grab the other food.

  • I am a clinical lab technician, I know well 90% of the content on this video however this was so well explained that I kept watching until the end, you also have a very good tone and way of explaining things. Thank you so much, this is an awesome summary of how we should be doing things. As a female I have found a lot of benefit and progress while avoiding soy (it stimulates estrogen). It’s impressive the amount of soy used in regular food, so check labels for that! I love japanese and chinese food and they use it a lot, so that’s my only allowance, but having it daily for example in a mayonnaise, any bread or chocolate chip cookie is too much.

  • Seriously, I have loved doing measurements on my journey versus focusing solely on weight. Ever week I weigh in and do measurements. Not every day every day weigh ins are the worst for me:/. I also do progress pics every other month. It is so much more encouraging especially when working out and putting on muscle. Sometimes I end up heavier one week but my measurements are smaller

  • Susan, how long did it take for you to get used to eating just 3 meals a day.  Are you hungry in between meals  I have such a hard time between lunch and dinner and I don’t want to stuff myself or overeat at mealtime just to make it through.  Will my body finally be able to do this?

  • Took me years to get on the rolling average excel sheet game. Looking at the info scientifically sure helps with the mend bending games. #sortinghatsquad. Love you J ������

  • I would work out for a frickin month and gain 0.5lbs whereas my husband pretty much just needs to burp and he’s lost 5lbs!!!!

    Men are also very poopie species!!! I dunno how they poop so many times a day!!!����‍♀️����‍♀️����‍♀️like what the heck!!!! So the scale is always going down for them!!!

  • I have found if I weigh every day that I if I lose any weight then I tend to eat more. That is why I only weigh once a month. Maybe I will change to oncr a week.

  • I know it’s science and it’s hormones and the scale shouldn’t matter as much as the fact that I’m losing inches but it DOES!! I don’t know why but I want that damn number to keep going down!

  • hey if I take a good amount of healthy carbs and stay within my calorie limit will I lose weight I actually love fruits roti sabzi oats etc and hate protein like chicken breast however I do eat a min of 100 g of protein but carbs (no junk) goes up to 250 g
    ps I workout as well

  • Kudos to mr. Cavaliere for the feminist shoutout and, well, I guess he’s well aware of this but: THIS MAN DOES A GREATE JOB WITH HIS JOB.

  • Bodyweight is meaningless unless you’re overweight. If you’re normal weight, measure your waist circumference (for men) and calculate your body fat percentage using the Navy method. For women there are a few more measurements.
    But weight doesn’t even change the outcome according to that method.

    I don’t even own a scale.

  • Burning fat quickly is mission impossible for some people, but you can quickly shed all the fat you want with a proven system I came across last night. This YouTube video clip is fine, but if you want a possible way to lose weight, you have to check out The Venus Factor. I have been using the system and it really works for me personally! I was so pleased I decided to share the web-site here with you guys. WeightLossWomen.4YourHelp. Com (remove space and open the site)

  • I love how openly you talk about periods. For lots of coaches, especially male coaches, it seems like a taboo subject. Which is so weird because it’s a HUGE part of the female body and female weight loss.

  • Thank god this video exists. My boyfriend has lost 12 lbs and I have gained 4+ lbs. He eats, drinks, and walks more than I do, but has lost more. It started to piss me off so i decided to scroll through your videos and figure out what to do. I want to lose fat, but can never seem to hold myself accountable. Going to start a tracker. I’ll keep you updated. Much love <3 thank you

  • My favorite thing you said was about how mean we are to ourselves and before you are negative to yourself ask would you say this to friend. I think this is so powerful and something I have started to incorporate in my journey.

  • I’ve watched several professional trainers on YouTube, both males and females, and he is the FIRST person to mention a women’s period as a factor. It’s refreshing that someone (especially a man) is willing to talk about it point blank.

  • Use I-Slim.
    The best product for weight management ever. This product is even ‘ayush premium’ certified. It will help you loose your bad fat. Contact me if you want to see the results of this product and try this.

  • The biggest factor is that people are lazy. A lazy womans excuse will be that men lose weight easier and a lazy mans excuse will be that you take some sort of drug or that its just genetically easier for you. Rarely will people simply admit that you took control of your mind and busted your ass.

  • Very good advice on nutrition & dividing the plate. A few months ago I was skinny fat but with this advice along with my pull up bar routine at home, ab work outs and bodyweight exercises has made huge difference during lockdown & i haven’t had access to any weights

  • For me mild the “PMS time” leads to reduced digestion, bloating, less activity, more hunger (actual hunger) and water weight. As soon as “the flow” starts the extra weight drops again.

    So, don’t worry if you don’t lose weight or even gain in a certain time of the month. It will solve itself.

  • Women’s weight loss can be more difficult than men’s weight loss. Women’s bodies are made differently and those differences can impact weight. Learn the differences and get advice on what you can do to support one another on your #WeightLoss journey in this week’s #HealthyEating video. 

  • I’ve learned that I shouldn’t tell friends im trying to lose weight. I’m doing everything right and it’s going slower then I want to and they are tearing into me saying I must be closet eating or eating the wrong things etc… Maybe you can include that tip in a future video!

  • Where have you been all my adult life!? Everything you talk about is me… it’s like you’re freakishly in my head! Then, you explain it and make it simple to understand… because it is. I’ve been following you for only a couple months, but I feel so much better about eating, training, weight loss… everything. So, thank you from the bottom of my muggle heart ❤

  • My thoughts after this video is: fuck nutrition �� naw j/k, I think Jeff broke it down nicely. Seems simple enough. 40/40/20 split. I love the fact that he said strength & HIIT exercises is very beneficial for women. So that means no need for treadmills or steady cardio. #winning I hate steady cardio, but love strength training & kickboxing which covers HIIT so I’m golden‼️��

  • Thank you Susan for addressing my question. We actually are both on your Bootcamp which started this January making steady progress. My husband is already 8 lbs away from his goal weight, but I still have some time to go. I have given myself a year to lose the weight, but I may get there sooner. According to my “Monitor my Weight” app prediction I may get there by mid August. Yay!

  • I’ve never related to a video so much lol.. I plateau every 10lbs or so and I’ll bounce between 151 and 153 lbs (for example) for what seems like forever. It’s so frustrating lol.

  • Most of us kinda know these facts already, but when it comes to actually losing weight it is all about your own determination. How bad and why’d you want to lose it?!

  • I’m still waiting for you to explain Why do men lose weight faster than women. That’s the title of this 26 minutes video, and you mentioned it once for aprox 5 seconds.

  • I always love your videos. I think the most life changing thing you’ve said for me is “treat yourself like you treat your friends” Honestly it was a game changer.

  • I would love a video about just stress. I’m on day 3 of trying to get back on track after being crappy all summer. But thank you for your videos, I always find them so motivational. #sortinghatsquad

  • Any time I weigh myself, as long as I’m not over approximately five pounds more than in the morning, I don’t worry about it, because it’s food and/or water weight. By morning, I’m back to where I was the morning before or even lower. I go more by what my physique looks like than what the scale says, and is how I reassure myself that I haven’t gained back any fat.

  • I just can’t wrap my head around not eating all the fucking time. I try and I just get out of control all the time. I treat myself like an asshole and I’m so sick of it. #sortinghatsquad

  • Thank you for a video, one of the best I have ever watched about scale and weighting yourself. Perfect timing for me to watch it as well, you rock!

  • #SortingHatSquad Woo, period talk! But can we acknowledge that it is often a period ten days? Literally 1/3rd of the month….3 days PMSing and wanting to eat more/having crazy cravings and then 5-7 days of feeling awful/cramping/and bleeding. Yes, every woman has a different cycle, but for me, it often equates to a full third of the month. I loved the idea of comparing period week weight to next month’s period week weight though, very mentally helpful!

  • The REAL answer is men are more mentally tough/stable than women. Just being real here. Even at my fattest, I NEVER did any of these crazy binge-purge cycles I hear all these women talk about. I had nowhere NEAR the emotional issues that women have. Basically, women are more emotional than men, and this is why.

  • I mean… women definitely store fat in their chest (boobs anyone? I know those are one of the first things to fill in or get smaller if I gain/lose weight)

  • Men DON’T lose weight easier than women. Men have more muscle generally speaking. That means it takes more calories to maintain normal size. If he is in a calorie deficit he will be hungry same as a woman.

    The men in the study lost more weight ONLY because they were in more of a caloric deficit. ( It’s the only way to lose weight.Because generally speaking men are taller/ Bigger than women. Men are generally bigger and eating the same amount of food as the generally smaller women.

    Women carry more fat than men. A woman who is completely shredded ripped will only be at about 13-15% body fat. Where as a male would be able to get down to 5% range. ( A range women can’t physically get to).

    It’s NOT easier for men to be in a caloric deficit than women!!! It’s a common misunderstanding.

    A man and woman of same age same height same weight and body fat and muscle content would require roughly the same calories to maintain. (Within a small amount of calories )

    it’s not what you what you look up on Google where it say women need 1200 calories and men need 1700. That is an average based on average man vs average woman to maintain average size. Where the average Man is 7″ taller than the average Woman he will obviously require more food.

    Results will vary more based on individual metabolism…which can be changed based on eating habits.
