First of all, I’m not saying women should lose weight, or look like this or that. Within reason, I think the most important part of a woman is her self-image and not her weight. I’ve seen extremely fit women that go on and on about how they should lose weight, and I’ve seen overweight women, that felt good about themselves. Guess what’s more attractive? Bitching and whining isn’t, that’s for sure. Weight is a personal issue, but if you decide to make it public by talking about how you need to lose x amount of weight, you better do something about it. 🙂
On to the real topic of this post:
When I go to a restaurant with my wife, I usually get about a third of her food. First of all, I have an extremely loving and selfless wife, but she’s also pretty smart. See what she figured out is that a man who weighs just below 100kg should eat more than a woman who weighs in the mid-60ies. Whooop-ti-fucking-doo. Brand new information right?
But most women seem to forget this and have exactly the same for dinner, for breakfast, for snacks and for everything else. That’s just plain weird. If you eat like a 90kg man, you’re gonna end up weighing what a 90kg man does (quick math: that’s 90kg).
For most people, the man should eat about 50% more than the woman (important note: it’s actually the other way around – the woman should eat 33% less than the man), though for some couples, the ratio might be a little different.
This doesn’t mean women should eat “more salad” or some other stupid thing. Females in general eat too little meat and too much crap. Focus on quality meat, green vegetables and a good source of carbs, but do so in moderation – at least compared to your man. For every time your man eats three spoonfuls, you eat two. It’s that simple.
Lastly: I don’t think you (whoever you are) look fat in those jeans, and I don’t really care what you weigh. But when you sit down at the dinner table, I want you to make an informed decision when eating and if you’re eating the same as your man, know the consequences. That’s it. Women need fewer calories to maintain their weight. Hooray!
As with anything on this blog – this is brand new information. :p
