Women’s History Month: Overcoming Weight Loss Challenges

March is Women’s History Month. We’d like to take a moment to acknowledge the obstacles that women face but can overcome when it comes to reaching their weight loss goals. Join us as we explore some of the scientific reasons that can make it difficult and celebrate some of our female clients’ success stories.  

The Science Behind Women’s Weight Loss Challenges 

Women often face unique hurdles in their weight loss journeys, a phenomenon backed by scientific research. These challenges are rooted in biological, hormonal, and lifestyle factors that make shedding pounds more complex than it is for men. Here are four obstacles women face in their weight loss journeys: 

Hormonal Fluctuations 

Women experience significant hormonal changes throughout their lives, especially during menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause. These fluctuations can affect metabolism and appetite, making it harder to lose weight.  

Lean Muscle Mass 

Women naturally have a lower resting metabolic rate, compared to men, so they burn fewer calories throughout the day. As a result, women may need to reduce their calorie intake further or increase physical activity to achieve the same weight loss as men.

Psychological Factors 

Stress and emotional eating tend to be more prevalent among women, according to studies. Per the American Psychological Association, 43% of women have overeaten or eaten unhealthy foods in the past month due to stress; only 32% of men fell into this same category. High levels of stress can lead to an increase in cortisol, a hormone that promotes fat storage, especially in the abdominal area.  

Societal Pressures 

Women often face societal pressures to look a certain way, which can lead to unrealistic expectations and unhealthy weight loss methods. These pressures, combined with the stress of balancing work, family, and personal life, can make sustainable weight loss more challenging.
