New Delhi, Jan 05 (ANI): A new study has found that men are better at dieting than women, as men lose weight faster and find it easier to keep off. According to a study, a large percentage of men declare that dieting is 'easy' and the stats showed men are better at losing weight over both long and short timescales, an online portal reported. It was also revealed if men do start putting a few pounds back on after reaching their target weight, they do so more slowly and combining exercise with a healthy diet followed by walking more and cutting out fat.But the survey revealed that a plus point for women was that they tend to set more realistic weight-loss targets but they did admit they often lack the willpower to stick to their planned diet schedule, as women were also more likely to combine exercise with a healthy diet than men, with almost four in ten revealing this as their chosen weight -loss method.
