Men vs. Women

This can be fat-loss food.

When it comes to fat loss, I noticed that the men usually have no problem sticking to it — yes, 4 out of the 4 men who have been consulting with me have lost fat, 18 lbs being the smallest weight loss.

But the women seem to have a harder time. First of all, I noticed that women have a hard time letting go of things like pastries, cake, and sweets. They sneak a bite, and defensively tell me later “it was only a bit!!! It can’t hurt!!!” Well, it can if you’re doing it often enough.

Second, women seem to be afraid of eating protein. Protein is essential if you want to get lean. It won’t make your muscles large and bulky, it will prevent you from losing the muscle mass you already have. And why do you need to retain muscle mass, you ask? Because you burn more calories the more muscle you have. Yes, people — it works a zillion times better than Butterfly Abs!

One of the ladies asked me if she could compromise — like if she stuck to the program only half the time, therefore getting only half the results. She imagined she’d be happy with that. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way. You can’t say “I’ll only eat half this doughnut since I’m on a diet.” Commit to an entire month of all-out effort, and you’ll see infinitely better results than being half-baked for two months.
