Man and woman are very different from each other biologically. We are not saying this, but today we have brought the facts related to it in front of you. Recent research has shown that it takes much more time for women to burn fat as compared to men. It has also come to the fore in this research that women burn fat slowly at the rate of 50 calories. According to the news published in Indian Express, men burn 500 to 1,000 more calories a day than women, which means they can lose about one to two pounds more than women in a week. even if they eat the same amount of calories.
Fat consumes more calories than muscle
Men have more lean muscle mass and a higher basal metabolic rate (BMR) than women. Lean muscle has insulin receptors and consumes more calories and therefore it is easier for men to burn more calories than women, even while resting. Men generally have more muscle than women, and fat consumes more calories than muscle.
What the Research Says
This results in a faster metabolic rate in men. Which studies show that it can be 3 to 10 percent higher than that of women. A slower metabolism means the body uses fewer calories to support normal bodily functions such as respiration, cognition and blood circulation. According to Dr. Sisodia, any extra calories get stored as fat. Estrogen levels decrease after menopause, and decreased estrogen can lead to a lower metabolic rate. The rate at which the body converts stored energy (fat) into working energy. In addition, post-menopausal women also lose lean muscle mass, leading to a further reduction in BMR. Women are naturally designed to store more body fat than men. While these differences may appear to give men an advantage, they should not be interpreted as men having an easier road out. According to the American Council on Exercise, an active woman has 21 percent to 24 percent body fat while a man has 14 percent to 17 percent.
Most of the fat of women is stored in the lower part of the body like back, thigh, lower abdomen. While men have more fat stored in the abdomen. That is because more fat accumulates in the intestines of men. Because of which the risk of heart disease increases more in men than in women.
