Yes, say weight control experts. Differences in muscle mass, body shape put women at a definite disadvantage. "There are some important gender differences," says Peter McCullough, medical director of Beaumont Hospital's Weight Control Center in Royal Oak. "Women in general face a tougher road during weight loss than men."

For women, the path of weight control has extra hurdles tied to metabolism, hormones and lifestyle.

Most experts agree men tend to lose weight faster because they typically have more lean muscle mass and a lower body fat percentage than women. Said simply, men generally have a higher metabolism, or rate at which they burn calories, because they have more muscle.

"It looks like especially in those in a really overweight category ... at peak exercise, men can burn more calories than women," says McCullough, who is also a consultant cardiologist in chief of Beaumont's Nutrition and Preventive Medicine division.

Weight Loss & Weight Management
An increase in physical activity is an important part of your weight loss program. Physical activity improves your muscle/fat ratio - thus raising metabolism for easier weight loss - and boosts your motivation to maintain the weight you lose.
