How to Lose Fat the Right Way (MEN VS WOMEN!)

When it comes to how to lose fat, there are some differences between men and women, and it goes beyond the simps differences in how we store it. In this video we look at how to lose fat, the right way, for men VS women. As you probably already know, men and women have different trouble spots when it comes to where they store fat. We’ll not only look at how men and women differ in terms of fat storage but we’ll also uncover several strategies that address the challenges that each face in their pursuit of fat loss.

For men, trouble spots tend to be in the chest. Chest fat, or man boobs start to develop when men are carrying too much body fat. The waist line or Love Handles is another trouble spot. Perhaps the most notable trouble spot is in the mid section or beer belly.
Even in examples of significant leanness men will store fat deposits in very specific areas of their mid section such as their lower abdominals and lower back.

For women, the fat loss trouble differ. Fat deposits on the backs of the arms creating’bat wings’. Women also experience more fat storage in their lower bodies; hips, thighs and calves. You’ve probably heard the terms saddlebags, cankles or muffin top to describe these trouble spot. This is evident in women who appear to be skinny or skinny fat, you’ll see that the areas mentioned above often show signs of extra fat deposited.

Many of the differences in where fat is stored come down to hormones, specifically Testosterone and Estrogen. Men and women don’t only have different trouble spots however, they also have different types of fat storage as well. Testosterone often creates more visceral fat. That is, fat stored behind the muscle sounding the organs.

Classic examples of this type of fat are men that have a rock hard protruding beer gut. This is caused by the fat actually pushing out against the layer of abdominal muscle. Since visceral fat surrounds the vital organs, this type of fat is more dangerous. Typically we see higher cases of heart disease in men often caused by their increased storage of visceral fat.

Women on the other hand have more subcutaneous fat. Subcutaneous fat is often driven by the binding of estrogen. While this type of fat is less dangerous than visceral fat it can still be troublesome and if you have it, you likely want it gone!

When it comes to strategies for losing fat the recommendation for women is to focus on exercises, specifically strength training over steady state cardio. Strength training will allow women to add muscle to their frames which is not only anabolic in itself, but will also help increase their existing levels of testosterone which will also help aid in fat loss.

For men, the focus should almost always be on nutrition. Since men have larger amounts of testosterone already, and likely carry more muscle mass as a result, they will generally want to focus on getting their eating in check. This will help lower their body fat especially when done in conjunction with a smart exercise program.

In addition to the tips above regarding fat loss through proper nutrition and exercise, you can also try incorporating some of mother natures secret ingredients. Foods like Oysters for additional Zinc, Red Grapes for Resveratrol, cruciferous vegetables for their high levels of phytochemicals. Other excellent foods to incorporate are mushrooms and fresh ginger.

  2. Hi love your videos. Was just wondering. Recently I switched to yoga due to an injury. Would yoga do good for weight loss instead of weight training.

  3. Avoid eating grapes because they contain mold, smut family. this inoculates the gut with dysbiotic pathogens and can hinder proper gut biome. Buy Resveratrol instead. You also cant eat enough grapes to meet the anti-oxidant and anti-viral effects of resveratrol and that goes also for wine which has resveratrol, but taxes liver methylation pathways. I consistently see low grade inflammation in my patients with grapes a common culprit. I have an article about “moldy” foods to avoid in my blog http://www.chronicfatigueandnutrition.com

  4. Thank you for this video. I just download this free Ebook at @t. It's mind-blowing how to lose weight and build muscle at the same time.

  5. Hey Jeff or anyone seeing this i’m 14 with a high metabolism rate and have a skinny frame i’m 6”1 and 70KG.

    I’m in no way ripped but my muscles are toned, however I have quiet some fat storage in my thighs – no where else but my thighs. How do i rid of this fat without losing muscle mass.

    P.S i was also thinking about eating a lot of mushrooms and grapes with vegetables to lower and combat oestrogen levels as said in the video that’s why fat gets stored in “female” places.
    I just need to know what to do!

    Thanks in advance guys

  6. A hundert gram of peanuts has way Mord kalorin than 250 gram of funnyfresh chips. Now guess wich is more "poisening" ur body…
    So stop thinkin about ur calorin and be more chilled. Just do ur diet like u feel it, if ur honest with urself it will still work, and ur not in danger of getting mental illnises like bullemie and stuff

  7. Umm, I'm a male and my fats very equally distributed, my thighs have a lot of fat, belly not so much. I mean Is it just genetics or some testosterone problems
