How many times have you embarked on a healthy eating regime and your other half decides to join in to support you then they lose more weight faster than you!!!
Annoying isn't it!
Great when they like to support you but when you are being really good and it seems to just fall off them it can get to you!
Why does it happen???
- Men are bigger usually and so they use up more energy simply moving around - therefore they only have to cut down a bit and it falls off them
- Men tend to have more muscle than women and bodies with a higher muscle composition burn more energy
- Women tend to cook the kids food more, not all I know, but when you are cooking the kids food there is more temptation to pinch some!
- Women are more likely to be emotional eaters, another generalisation, I know, but women are more likely to comfort eat, snack out of boredom or frustration or eat for many reasons other than hunger. most diets fail to do anything other than restrict food intake.
We can build more lean muscle tissue for a start, make sure that you incorporate some weight bearing exercise into your routine, this can be bodyweight so classes like yoga/pilates/toning etc
We can also learn to address our issues with food, look at why we maybe snack or binge and adopt a healthy eating plan that address mindset and promotes a lifestyle change when it comes to food rather then simply restricting food groups or portions!
This is the way of life I promote with Kick Start Fat Loss, I look at why we eat at certain times or crave certain things and teach tricks and ways to change your mindset for good!
Has this happened to you and your other half has shrunk when you have been on a "diet", I would love to know?
