Weight Loss: The Advantage of Being Men

The main culprit of being weight gain is loss of lean muscle mass, which is everything inside your body beside fat.

Therefore, our joint become inflexible and our muscle become loosen, fat take over those “crevice” which supposed to be lean muscle mass.

This process is slow and you might not even notice it. At the same time, it slows down your metabolism and you are easy to gain weight.

Lack of energy is another culprit for losing weight control. Normally, the more you feel lack of energy, the more you do not want to do anything, especially workout, which is a vicious cycle for your weight.

What Should You Do To Keep Your Body In Good Shape?

Doing exercise, having healthy diet will help you build up your lean muscle mass and stay in a good shape.

However, if you have patience with exercise and having healthy diet, it doesn’t matter whether you are man or women.
