The Difference Between Men and Women

This article from Time Magazine discusses some of the reasons why men usually seem to have an easier time losing weight than women.

Years back I was in a Weight Watchers group at my office. The group was about 90% women, but the few of us guys that were there seemed to have a much easier time losing weight.

Some of that can be attributed to the fact that the guys got many more "points" to work with, and many of the women found it difficult to stick to the program given how little they were allowed to eat.

The article asserts that men are just plain better at controlling their hunger, which should give us an advantage on any diet, the SLD included.
