The difficulty in losing weight is also a gender issue. Who would say it is harder for men? According to research in Denmark, the reason is that they think diet is their thing.

Why Diets Go Wrong - And Explanation Is in Science
The reason we see so many panças among males of the species is that males have the ability to change eating habits but are unwilling to face restrictive regimes.
Called the "strong sex", what seems most resistant to them is even the hard head.
In the study by the University of Copenhagen, the impact of treatments offered individually to men and women in Denmark between 1989 and 1995 was analyzed.
Subsequently, the authors followed the original study participants for 13 years until 2008.
Of the 970 patients who survived the first data collection, 478 women and 492 men were re-examined.
Doctors' recommendations included the regular use of medicines and the need to exercise regularly.
Everyone should meet individual goals to be reviewed quarterly.
Those in the control group could choose any treatment and even change what they were following over the period.
After six years, no effects have been identified on their condition.
But those who received individualized treatment, the difference was identified between genders - women had less blood glucose.
According to Dr. Marlene Krag, of all participants, "women accepted the fact that they were ill and faced treatment more easily, which may affect long-term outcomes."
The results showed that women given personal care plans were 26% less likely to die from any cause.
And 30% less to die from a diabetes-related cause.
They were also 41% less susceptible to stroke.
And 35% less from suffering any diabetes-related fatalities, such as amputation or blindness.
Imagine that the same medical advice given to men had no impact on their health.
Essentially, men do not accept to follow directions and prefer to bet on an intuition based on their own sensitivity that, in fact, they do not have.
Thus, clinging to concepts such as masculinity and laziness or unwillingness to change their habits, they are more likely to leave us sooner.
The authors concluded that the best results found among women can be explained by complex social and cultural gender issues.
They added that in view of this, there is a need to rethink the way care is provided between men and women so that both sexes can benefit from treatment.
