Women have a harder time losing weight simply due to the realities of metabolic rate. What this means is each pound of muscle requires a set amount of energy on a daily basis. Quite simply, considering the average human body, men have quite a few more pounds of muscle then women. Of course tissue other than muscle requires energy as well but muscle is the most active and requires the most on a daily basis. If an average American woman weighs 140 lbs. and an average American man weighs 175 lbs. then simply put the man is carry 35 additional pounds of tissue that requires energy. If I give both the man and the woman a 1200 calorie diet the man will lose weight at a much faster pace. The man will also suffer at a much higher rate due to the fact his needs are higher so his hunger will be greater.
