Men and women have different bodies. Well, yes. Obviously. But the differences are a lot more than just the obvious. The separate genders actually burn and store different things pertaining to what they need. Let’s look at some of the distinctions between the two.
A woman’s body needs much more essential fat than a man’s body would. This is mainly because a female body must always be ready for reproduction. She will carry the extra weight in her lower body in order to help support the possibility of a child. Women will normally need about 13 percent of their bodyweight to be fat content. If the fat content is less than that, their bodies may become easily fatigued and the menstruation cycle could be thrown off or stop completely. Men, on the other hand, need much less essential fat to remain healthy, the lowest being about three percent of bodyweight. They also store fat in the upper part of their body first because they have no need to store the fat content that a woman does. The amount of healthy fat in anyone’s body will change also as people get older.
