Unfortunately, ladies, the myth is true, guys find it easier to lose weight then we do. Unfair?! I know, but let us explain the genetics behind the myth and help us girls even up the score.

The simple truth is that men are larger and have more muscle than women. They are genetically designed to have a higher percentage of muscle and less fat – which works in favour of keeping them fit and allowing them to eat more calories. And since more muscle means a faster resting metabolism, men’s bodies naturally burn calories at a faster rate.

But with a little work, women can even up the odds a bit. To build more muscle and get your engine revving, pick up some weights. You’ll increase your muscle mass and decrease your fat stores by doing strength training at least twice a week.
