WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MALE AND FEMALE METABOLISM?

ARE MALE AND FEMALE METABOLISM THE SAME?

Metabolism can be defined as the chemical processes occurring in living organism to maintain life. Although the chemical processes are fundamentally similar in the metabolism of men and women, the energy used to carry out these processes is different from each other. The amount of this energy also determines the rate of metabolism. Do women’s or men’s metabolisms work faster? Turkey Medicals member and hospital department Expert Turkish Dietitian gave information about the subject…

Genetically, men have more muscle and less fat mass than women. Muscle tissue spends more energy than adipose tissue, and therefore, as the muscle mass in the body increases, the metabolic rate also increases. For this reason, men’s metabolic rates are higher than women’s. This is the reason why men can lose weight faster than women.

THE LOCATION OF FAT STORES IN MEN GIVES AN ADVANTAGE

Decongestants are more effective in reducing the risk of developing prostate cancer than in reducing it.muscle supplements are more effective in reducing the risk of developing breast cancer. Fat cells in the abdominal area are more sensitive to fat burning, so it is easier to achieve loss from the abdominal area than from the hips and thighs.

.
MENOPAUSE IN WOMEN SLOWS DOWN THE METABOLIC RATE

As age progresses, the metabolic rate in women and men decreases, but this decrease is more pronounced in women because menopause is also approaching. Hormonal and metabolic changes that develop as menopause approaches usually lead to weight gain during this period. As fat increases, muscle mass begins to decrease, which leads to a decrease in metabolic processes.

MEN GET MORE EFFICIENCY FROM EXERCISE

Women have muscle fibers that contract more slowly, which means they use more fat when exercising, but after exercising, women burn more carbohydrates, while men start burning fat after exercising. This, in turn, leads to the fact that losing weight is more difficult for women and easier for men, as they constantly burn fat after exercise.
