Why is it so Hard for Women to Lose Weight?

Why is it so Hard for Women to Lose Weight?

Guest Author: Christina Holston, Zumba Instructor, Trainer, Medical Assisting Instructor, and Co-Owner Team Nutrition Train 

Why is it so Hard for Women to Lose Weight? The belly, the hips, the thighs, the butt, the arms, did I say the butt? It can be very difficult for women to lose weight. If my husband says he wants to lose 5 pounds, like magic it seems like it flies off of him and gets added to my hips. In this article I am going to go over the science of why it is so hard for women to get the weight off and some tips on how we can do it! Why is it so Hard for Women to Lose Weight?

Why is it so Hard for Women to Lose Weight? Estrogen… It sucks!

Estrogen is what gives us our breasts and wider hips. It may be attractive to some, but sometimes it gets in the way. Estrogen is one of the main reasons why we have higher body fat percentages on average than our male counterparts. The American College of Sports Medicine states that healthy men should have a body fat percentage of 10-22%, while women should have a body fat percentage of 20-32%.

So this explains why you have more fat than your male counterpart, but don’t fray. We will figure out how to fight fire with fire!

Throw Away the Trash!

Before starting your diet it is always best to “Throw away the Trash!” If you have any unhealthy food in the house, throw it away before you start your diet. No reason to punish yourself and tempt yourself.

 

We Don’t Have the Lean Muscle Men Have

Why is it so Hard for Women to Lose Weight?

In my above paragraph about estrogen I talk about our body fat percentages being higher. For every pound of lean muscle someone has, that is 14 calories extra burned. Every pound of fat only burns 2 calories per day. Due to the fact that us ladies have higher body fat percentages and less lean muscle than our male counterparts, we don’t burn the amount of calories that men do. We have to build lean muscle to compete with them when it comes to metabolism! You cannot be afraid to lift heavy weights!

Girls will not look like men if they lift weights if they do the following:

  1. Don’t take steroids

That’s it, there is not a #2. I don’t discriminate against women wanting to take steroids, however it isn’t for me. If you lift weights, diet, add cardio you will lose weight, look great, and look beautiful.

If you need a workout, checkout the great workouts here!

We Have to Have our Nutrition Perfect

We can’t slip as much as our male counterparts. Testosterone allows men to build muscle easier than us girls. Us girls tend to love simple carbs (chips, candy, donuts, bread!), but simple carbs do two things. They spike blood sugar, and they also add water weight (1 gram of carbs add 3 grams of water to your body). Between the two that means we are adding fat and extra water weight.

Supplements like the Royal Queen 21 Fat System which helps boost your metabolism, eliminate cravings, decrease appetite, optimize hormones, and even increase sleep is excellent to help us lose weight and help us better control our diets.

If you cannot get away from carbs (party, etc.) look at a supplement like GDA (Glucose Disposal Agent). It helps you block carbs from spiking blood sugar. This supplement is amazing and I take it every day!

Try not to spike your blood sugar unless you are in post workout (within 60 minutes of working out). Go high protein (protein is the last macro-nutrient that turns into fat), moderate fat, and complex carb. I rely on Level-1 Protein Meal Replacement Shakes during for breakfast (138.5 calories, 24 grams of protein, low carb, low fat), and healthy snacks. I meal prep lunch and have a sensible dinner. As soon as I’m done with my evening workout I hit the Post Workout Stack from 1st Phorm which includes Phormula-1 and Ignition. This is the highest grade Hyrdo-Whey to refuel your muscles with amino acids, protein, and pure glucose to get your muscles rebuilt.  Plus it tastes absolutely amazing. Imagine a root beer float post workout?

We Cannot Binge Eat!

Women are more susceptible to binge eating, especially after we workout. Just because we workout doesn’t mean we should eat more food afterwards! What makes things worse for us is that our hormone that controls hunger goes up post workout, and our hormone that controls feeling full goes down post workout. Our bodies want to binge eat after working out! UGHHHHHHH! This is where you need to drink your Post Workout Shake immediately after working out, then if you are still really hungry eat some carrots or fruit.

 

Water Weight

Believe it or not, men actually hold more water weight than women! I thought for sure before doing research that women held more water weight than men! I think it may effect us more especially during our favorite time of the month. The great news is that there is ways to combat excess water weight. Drinking more water (80+ ounces a day), decreasing sodium, increasing potassium, taking a multi-vitamin such as M-Factor Goddess, or taking a great fat burner like the Royal 21 Queen System can help you relieve extra water weight issues!

Make Sure you See Your Doctor Regularly

Why is it so Hard for Women to Lose Weight?

Dr. Luby, a premier Gynecologist that I worked for over 7 years. I learned so much working for this man! 

I was a Patient Coordinator/Asst. Office Manager at a OB/GYN for 7 years and currently teach Medical Assisting at a Career Tech High School and I can’t stress enough to women the importance of getting annual checkups with their doctors. It is important to get annual blood tests for thyroid, cholesterol, blood sugar, and other essential body functions. It is also vital to see your Gynecologist each year and get a PAP. There are too many preventable diseases and cancers that can be detected in blood work and screenings that can save your life.

Some of these screenings will see if there are some underlying conditions that may be causing weight gain. Feel free to talk to your doctor about concerns that you have.

Summary

Why is it so Hard for Women to Lose Weight? We are paddling upriver, we are climbing a mountain, and we are driving a car without brakes, however losing weight isn’t impossible for women. We are determined, intelligent, and stubborn as hell and won’t take no for an answer. If you follow the above tips, check out the supplements listed above, you to can lose weight easily!

The Ultimate Weight Loss Stack

The Ultimate Weight Loss Stack

 

As a personal trainer and sports nutritionist, I get asked all the time what the best weight loss stack is. By definition you want a weight loss stack that helps you burn fat, crush cravings, optimize thyroid levels, lower cortisol, help with rest, and more. You also want to have other supplements that lower blood sugar levels, and even a good meal replacement. I have chose three great supplements (1 is a system with three supplements) to help you jump start your weight loss.

  1. The Royal XXI King or Queen System: The Royal XXI System is from 1st Phorm. It includes three powerful supplements: Royal Queen (or King depending on gender), C-21 and T-21. Royal Queen and King are fat burners that shred fat, decrease cravings, eliminate appetite, and help increase energy in calorie deficient states. C-21 allows you to reduce cortisol levels and sleep better. T-21 helps increase your natural thyroid levels to help your body rid off fat. You can order the Royal XXI King or Queen System here with Free Shipping! https://1stphorm.com/a/products/fat-burners?a_aid=nutritiontrain
  2. Level-1 Meal Replacement Protein: Cooking health meals can be expensive and take a lot of time. Fortunately 1st Phorm created a protein shake that tastes amazing and is very nutritious. Each shake is only 140 calories, low carb, low fat, and packed with protein. These shakes keep you full and mix easily, and for only $1.66 a shake, it is much cheaper than a $10.00 salad with chicken at a restaurant! Order Here with free shipping! https://1stphorm.com/a/products/protein-powder/meal-replacement-proteins?a_aid=nutritiontrain
  3. GDA (Glucose Disposal Agent): GDA from 1st Phorm is a supplement that helps you store sugar that would normally turn to fat into the muscle. This sugar gets converted to glycogen and gets stored into the muscle cell for greater athletic performance and prevents you from getting fat around your waist. This helps you keep your blood sugar from spiking and keeps insulin down. This is a great supplement for those who are dieting and like to workout.  Order GDA with Free Shipping! https://1stphorm.com/a/products/fat-burners/mens-fat-burners/gda?a_aid=nutritiontrain

 

With these three supplements you should see explosive results with diet and exercise!

What the F#$% are WE Eating?

The past year or 2 has been bad for dieters and bodybuilders a like. We have had scandals and we have had companies lie to us. Here is a summary of the bad and the ugly!

Subway Eat Fresh Soy With Your Chicken!

Image result for subway

A recent study by the University of Trent (Canada) showed the chicken content of many restaurants in Canada. Most restaurants were rated between 85%-90% chicken by DNA analysis. This is normal once you consider spices and such, however there was one outlier: Subway. Subway’s chicken they use for their famous Oven Roasted Chicken Breast was allegedly a paltry (pun intended) 53% chicken with the remaining being mainly soy. Their chicken strips for their Sweet Onion Teriyaki was less than 43% chicken.

Soy mimics estrogen and can cause increase in fat gain in men and women.

Story: https://www.forbes.com/sites/brucelee/2017/02/28/subways-denies-report-that-50-of-its-chicken-is-not-really-chicken/#79011dca622a

Lenny & Larry’s Complete Cookie is total Bullsh!t

Image result for Lenny & Larry'sIf you are like me, you like to eat healthy high protein deserts as often as possible to get over your sweets addiction. Lenny & Larry’s cookies were a staple in our homes in the summer of 2016 after a friend became an affiliate of the small company. It was hard to believe that the tasty cookie had 16 grams of protein per cookie, until it was tested and had between 4-9 grams per cookie. A class action suit is filed and hopefully you and I will get a refund.

Story: https://medium.com/@anthonyroberts/lenny-larrys-complete-cookie-lacks-protein-says-class-action-lawsuit-46d7d6ce1fae#.j3yzgkf23

Protein Spiking

In 2015 we had several companies that were caught protein spiking, or not using all the protein that they listed on the label. They used the term “protein spiking” which means they added cheap filing amino acids that reduces the cost of production, but also reduces the results for the purchaser. Some of the companies that got caught were:  Giant Sports, MusclePharm, CVS Health, 4 Dimension Nutrition, NBTY and Inner Armour.

Story: https://www.forbes.com/sites/alexmorrell/2015/03/12/lawsuits-say-protein-powders-lack-protein-ripping-off-athletes/#5a990b0c7729

 

How do we Prevent Ourselves from Being Taken Advantage of?

Try to find companies that use FDA approved facilities such as the ones that 1st Phorm use. 1st Phorm also has a 110% money back guarantee (this means if you don’t like the product, they have a return policy that is no questions asked, that you get 100% of your purchase price back plus 10%). Don’t rely on exaggerated claims or miracle weight loss products. These are nearly 100% scams. Watch for the words cleanses, miracle diets, celebrity diets, Dr. Oz Approved, Oprah Approved, eat whatever you want diets, etc. because more often then not they have been proven false.
