Lose Fat: If you want to lose fat, you will have to burn more calories than you consume, often called: caloric deficit. It’s when your body uses fat stores for energy, which leads to weight loss.

It’s easy to get excited and place more attention on the small details like the newest supplement, diabetic special food or the best time to consume your whey protein, rather than prioritizing the more important (yet sometimes boring) aspects like the ‘WHY’ behind eating better, overall, calorie intake or diabetes management.

Men do actually tend to lose fat more easily than women — especially belly fat in the midsection, notes the University of North Carolina. That doesn’t mean losing weight is impossible, though, or that you need a fundamentally different approach to weight loss than a man — it just might take a little longer to reach your goals. But aggressive diet and lifestyle changes will help you drop fat as quickly as possible, so you can get the body you want.
