    • I was told by my trainer to change my exercise routine.  Your body gets use to the the exercise so it doesn’t work as hard anymore to lose the fat.  You just maintain the muscles.  But do talk to your doctor and see if they can give you any ideas about what you could be doing different.

    • Men tend to lose weight faster in general.  

      Men have two major weight-loss advantages over women: One involves their body composition, which enables them to burn calories at a faster rate than women; the second revolves around the fact that men tend to be more active than their female counterparts. These two major factors—more calories burned at rest and more calories burned in activity—translates into faster weight loss for guys

      Men are biologically programmed to have higher amounts of lean body mass, or muscle, than women. Lean body mass is the key factor that determines the rate of one’s metabolism, the body’s calorie-burning system. Since men have more muscle, their metabolisms are higher, and they burn more calories even when they‘re resting, so the final result is a more rapid weight loss.

      Research has found that on average the metabolism of a man is 5 to 10 percent higher than that of a woman of the same weight and height.

      I found Isagenix ...and have been happy with how much weight it has allowed me to release through nutritional cleansing.  Even in peri-menopause, it has truly allowed me to balance out my entire system and stay on top of the usual peri weight gain.

      I am in better health now that I was 5 years ago and have more energy than most of my much younger counterparts.

      I think the key is finding what works for you!
