Is it true that for obese men, doctors will recommend a strict 800 calorie diet but won't with obese women? If so, why?

Is it true that for obese men, doctors will recommend a strict 800 calorie diet but won't with obese women? If so, why?

I don't think so: The key to weight loss for men or women is reducing calories long-term. Men usually burn more calories per day than women, assuming similar levels of activity and similar body mass. Every individual's daily calorie needs are different, but to lose weight, one must keep reducing calories until the weight starts coming off. If weight is stable, it means the body still has enough calories to keep it. ...Read more

Assuming general good health. One man is obese, the other is muscular and lean-5-7% bf%. No access to food or water in a desert, who would die 1st? Y?

Interesting question: The death for both would most likely be due to lack of water. If the obesity was due to water retention (a common cause) and if the body could use the accumulated water the obese person might survive longer. If it was fat rather than water the obese would live longer in regard to hunger since he could live on his fat. I believe that water would be the vital issue. It is purely theoretical. ...Read more
