My husband and I are both doing Atkins but he zips along losing regularly even though he sometimes cheats I follow the program religiously but have hit several plateaus Do men have an advantage doing Atkins

Yes, they do. Unfortunately, weight loss is not an equal opportunity activity. Gender and age play a role. There are at least three reasons that most men-particularly young men-tend to lose more easily than women-particularly older women. First, men generally have greater muscle mass than women so they bum more calories than women do. Second, a woman's body is much more subject to hormonal fluctuations, which can play havoc with your blood-sugar and insulin response. Finally, estrogen supresses thyroid function, which in turn slows your metabolism, making it more difficult to lose weight.
