Women’s and Men’s Preferred Weight-Loss Approaches 2

In a Weight Watchers study looking at approaches to weight loss, 79 percent of the men surveyed said that they simply wanted practical weight-loss information (“just give me the facts”). However, as men begin to follow a weight-loss plan and are successful at losing weight, their interest in knowing more of the details is piqued.
The following breakfast conversation illustrates how a woman and a man on a structured eating plan might communicate using their details versus facts perspectives.

He says:     “Breakfast—I’m starved! Yes or no: Can I have eggs?”
She says:  Yes, you can have eggs. In fact, you can have them poached, hard-boiled, scrambled with fat-free milk, or fried with no more than one-half teaspoon of oil.
He says:   “I think I’ll make a poached egg. Would you like one? And by the way, can I have a piece of toast?”
She says:  “No, thanks, on the egg. I think I’ll have a six-ounce carton of fat-free yogurt instead, so that I can get a start on my daily calcium recommendation. And yes, you can have toast, but it has to be whole wheat, and you can put one teaspoon of sugar-free jam on top.
He says:   “I am so glad you know all of this. Its a lot
of information to keep straight.
She says:  “Dont worry. You’ll get used to it.

You probably noticed that the woman seemed to be totally into the plan, while the man seemed more hesitant because of all the details. Despite the fact that both men and women want to lose weight, they may need to use different approaches in order to meet with weight- loss success. A woman may want to choose an approach that provides details about what, when, and how things should be done. Many men may be better off with an approach that focuses on fewer details while still getting the job done
