Referring to research conducted by the University of Toronto, White explains his rather provocative position as follows: “Those who restrain themselves with diets, as a rule, are in the habit of seriously overeating before and after the diet.” In this case, it is women who sit on diets more often.
Men do not pay so much attention to the problem of weight loss and rarely limit themselves so.
White encourages women also to beware of low-calorie foods, on whose labels are labeled “dietary”. In such food, the fitness guru believes, there is a total lack of fat and protein, and it is they who support the feeling of satiety in us.
However, such products usually contain an increased amount of sodium and sugar, which are designed to perform this function instead of fat.
Instead, White proposes to pay more attention not to the quantity and caloric content of foods and ingredients, but to their quality and the ratio in the daily diet of fats, proteins and carbohydrates. This, in his opinion, is key to weight loss.
Protein food longer keeps us feeling full. Eating a steak, a man makes one solid meal and then does not need snacks. Also with beer.
To drink a glass of beer, and it is always big, White points out, it means to fill your stomach tightly with a nutrient-rich drink, after which a man no longer needs snacks or other beverages. Cocktails, which are usually preferred by women, are a harmful mixture of different drinks and contain quite a lot of sugar, which stimulates thirst and you feel thirsty again.
In addition, White strongly advises to drink more simple water – it helps to maintain the level of energy in the body that is necessary for exercise and for active life in general. Fatigue nutritionist calls one of the main reasons why we want to eat.
At the same time, White admits that men lose weight faster than women because of the well-known physiological factor: the male hormone testosterone helps them in this.
Jim White’s advice and recommendations have already earned recognition among his colleagues. Many personal fitness trainers confirm the fact that women need to consume large amounts of protein in order to replenish their energy.
Otherwise, most women who adhere to a strict diet, break down or eat up all the kilograms left immediately after it ends.
However, nutritionist Kimberly Snyder, states that the differences in nutrition in women and men noted by White are not accidental. In her opinion, they are due to more serious essential differences between men and women in principle.
For example, Snyder points out that women are more emotional, and their food cravings are often carried out on an emotional basis, while in men this is not so noticeable. Also, women are dependent on their menstrual cycle, which has a serious impact, both on emotionality, and directly on the need for certain nutrients and, accordingly, the resulting cravings.
In this regard, the idea of White about the transition of women to the “male” type of food, Snyder does not find so useful and wealthy.
