Men usually like to compete and are motivated by incen- tives. Women tend to support each other and work toward goals together. Men tend to diet for health (and health scares), while women may focus more on ap- pearance. Men might lose weight faster because they've got more muscle mass, but exer- cise is important for every- one. Obviously, these are gener- alizations. We all know women who are motivated by money and men who are ob- sessed with their looks. But what the differences be- tween dieting men and dieting women tell us is this: When it comes to weight loss,.one size does not fit all. Recent research published in the New England Journal of Medicine says, "Reduced- calorie diets result in clinical- ly meaningful weight loss re- gardless of which macronutri- ents they emphasize." That tells us that when it comes to losing weight, the type of diet doesn't matter and neither does gender, but cut- ting calories does. Personal behavior, such as physical ac- tivity in the form of deliberate exercise and general daily ex- ertion, also counts. Every little bit of physical movement counts because it all adds up to the total amount of physical activity, or calo- ries burned, in a 24-hour peri- od. Similarly, every little bit of food that goes into your mouth counts because it all adds up to the total calories consumed in a 24-hour period. While keeping track of these intakes and expendi- tures may seem tedious, it doesn't have to be. Pick one thing to add or change and do it until it becomes a habit, and then add more. For nutrition: Keep it sim- ple by making sure you eat smaller, healthier portions. A good rule is to only eat half of the amount you would like to eat. Make sure you eat at least one vegetable and at least one fruit per day and work up to the recommended daily al- lowance of at least five serv- ings a day. Or, just make over one meal at a time. Start slow and make new changes once these have taken root. For physical activity: Add a weekend activity to your sched- ule such as walking or doing yard work for 20 minutes. When you're ready, add an- other day of physical activity, or go for a longer walk. Once you feel fitness taking root in you, you will start to crave more. Sticking with weight loss is difficult for both sexes, how- ever different our struggles may be. While men and women may differ when it comes to weight loss, both can be equally successful once they fred out what works for them.
