Men are big losers ... when it comes to weight loss. Some guys can just cut back on how much beer they drink and drop five pounds a month without doing much else.
Yes, it's frustrating − but you can learn a thing or two from the way men drop pounds. Here are four tips to help you lose weight like a guy"
He lifts heavy weights.
Women tend to use small weights and do isolated exercises − which means lots of work for limited results. Instead, lift like a guy and take on weights that make you strain to do 8 to 10 reps.
He doesn't use food as a therapist.
Women are twice as likely to use food to fight depression and twice as likely to get depressed in the first place − making them four times more likely than men to emotionally eat! Take a breath. Try to determine whether you're eating your emotions or you're actually hungry.
He makes time for himself.
Women often find their only refuge in food. Instead, make timejust for youevery day, and plan semi-regular treats − like a spa day − so that you always have something to look forward to.
He doesn't give up favorite foods.
Guys usually cut back rather than eliminate their favorite foods. Women often go all or nothing − then end up binging when their willpower breaks. Try allowing a small portion of your favorites every other day, so that you never feel deprived.
