Men seem to lose faster than women...A double standard?

Why is it...that men seem to lose weight faster than women? Garvin is now down 23 pounds...and I am nearly 10....I can understand the situation...of why Garvin would lose faster than me this time...however, it seems that it is a general rule...men lose faster than women....Is there is a double standard...even in the weight department????...(smile)

Actually, I am thrilled over Garvin's current success...Anytime our bodies are OUT OF TUNE...eating RAW foods is a great way...to help it back to being "healthy"....

In our experimenting with JUICING...Sandee Spencer sent me a site...that refers to the DANIEL DIET..."Old Testament Daniel"... http://ldshealth.ning.com - This site has some GREAT RECIPES for a healthier lifestyle of eating...

I tried one of their recipes for juicing:
APPLES - (# of apples depends on size and amount of juice you get from apples - I used generally 2-3 apples)
1 peeled lemon
approx. 1 inch raw ginger root

I juiced these together...The ginger gives it a PUNCH....Besides...the nutritional value of the drink....it is not a "boring" drink...(smile)

  1. Well women usually live longer. I think they lose faster because they have more muscle mass which burns calories quicker and they don't have as much estrogen in their bodies.

  2. Thanks, Gail...I often wondered if there was an actual reason men seem to drop faster in weight...Figured that the activity of their work...helped them...but, the physiology makeup you would think...would play a part...also...

  3. Yes I have heard the same as Gail. Muscle burns more calories than fat and men have more muscle. The solution (Gail keeps telling me this) lift weights and add to your muscle mass.

    Another factoid is that quick weight loss usually depletes your muscle mass making it harder to lost more weight.

    Oh and by the way you can move my marker. I now have 25 pounds left to lose! (I've lost 30 since September)

  4. Thanks, Sandee...for the additional information...Sounds like...once we get our home...and begin all that "physical" labor to develop the LAND...I will be able to rebuild that loss of muscle mass...GARVIN, especially!!! It will be SO GOOD for him...We both wanted a FARM LIFE...though, this will truly be "mini" in nature! (smile)

    I, also, changed your "ticker" to REFLECT...the "30" pounds LOST!!!! That is truly FANTASTIC!!! It is INSPIRING to me...as well...But, most of all...that you are losing weight in a "healthy" manner!!!
