Why it really is harder for women to lose weight

Interesting article I found on the web. My favorite part:
" ...Sass says she sees more women take extreme measures to get back on track, with tactics such as juice cleanses, skipping meals or extreme dieting — not the most sustainable methods. “Most but not all men tend to just try to get back on track with the original plan, or build in a little more exercise,” she says. That is, they take a more balanced approach to getting back on track, just trying to regroup and get back on the diet, or build in a little more exercise."

Yay for the men!
" Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."

emotional eating is pretty much the undoing of women who want to diet, unfortunately.

Whoever writes this article does not know anything about fitness, cardio burn more calories than strange training. You cannot build muscle mass on a deficit.
