Women lose Weight Slower Than Men- Truweight ascertains the association between Weight loss & Gender
Truweight took an initiative to study the pattern of weight loss among a batch of their 120 clients.
Out of which 86 were female and 34 were male. The paper sheds light on how following the same diet program, the weight loss results can vary based on gender as well as age.
After 10 days detox, the mean weight loss among female clients was found to be 2 kg whereas, the mean weight loss among male clients were found to be 2.5 kg.
Analysis of the one month program showed that the mean weight loss among female clients was found to be 3.4 kg whereas, the mean weight loss among male clients were found to be 4.8 kg.

Men and Women have different body structures and body metabolism that make women lose weight slower when compared to men.
Different reasons for this are
Men have more muscles in their body frame that make them have a faster metabolism than women.
This is one of the main reasons why they lose weight faster even if they very thinly tailor their diet plans.
Also, according to a 2016 Yale University review, women have much higher levels of estrogen and progesterone, which contribute to stronger food cravings than men that can be an inhibitor of weight loss.
Truweight’s study paper on weight reduction submitted to International Journal of Food Science and Nutrition assesses the above point.
In 10 days and one month, the program analysis established that women lose weight slower than men do.
The study also found a solid association between weight loss, age, gender and Body Mass Index (BMI).
Diet is one of the key factors in the journey of a healthy weight loss and that is where Truweight’s belief ‘Food is the best medicine’ holds immense significance.
“Weight loss is not a race to check who can lose faster. Men might lose faster initially but in the long run, both might be at the same range.
Women need to focus on healthy weight loss that could be slow but consistent. Even a 5 to 10% decrease in body weight has benefits of improving blood sugar and blood pressure levels.
Consistency is the key. Eating right and following healthy lifestyle will help both men and women achieve their weight loss and health goals.” – said Suhasini Mudraganam, Chief Nutritionist, Truweight Wellness Pvt Ltd
