Why Men Lose Weight Faster Than Women

It can be hard for anyone to lose weight, but a new study shows one gender has the true advantage when it comes to shedding pounds.

The study out of England put both men and women on the same diet. After two months on the diet – the men lost twice as much weight and three times as much body fat as the women did.

But don't get too ticked off, ladies. Women eventually caught up. Six months into the study the weight loss evened out.

According to the Mayo Clinic, men's muscles have more lean tissue – which burns more calories than body fat. Experts say testosterone also plays a big role.
