I think a weight loss plateau is one of the most frustrating things we can face when we’re trying to cut the extra pounds. It’s damaging to the feeling that you’re getting anywhere or that our efforts are worthwhile. After all, if I’m stepping on the scale week after week, only to see the exact same number despite my best fat burning efforts, I’m going to get frustrated. I’m going to question what I’m doing. Getting to understand why this happens and what I should do about it has made a huge difference to achieving my goals.
Do men really lose weight faster than women? Does the sex we’re born with really make that much of a difference to the effectiveness of our dieting? While some people – including my fiancée, Breeze – swear that there is a physical difference between us that makes it easier for me to drop a pound of fat than it would be for her, others think it’s all in our heads.
I’ve learned by experience, trial and error, failure, and victories that fitness and nutrition for men are two puzzle pieces that fit together to complete a final goal. I can’t get the most out of a gym session without eating right. At the same time, I can’t get the results I want from eating right if I don’t work out properly.
I’ve been taking a new look at the importance of savoring your foods and have realize that this is an important priority when it comes to healthy eating. It’s not just a matter of enjoying the meal – which is definitely an important factor. It also has a surprising impact on how much we eat.
