    Question Why Do Some People Lose Weight Faster Than Others?

    I was wondering why some people lose weight faster than the others even if they do the same diet and work out. I've seen some people who shed more pounds than others and I think it has something to do with ones metabolism. However, there are also some who have fast metabolism yet they lose weight slower. So what are other factors to consider why this happens?

    Re: Why Do Some People Lose Weight Faster Than Others?

    One of the reasons that some people will lose weight faster than others is simply because their metabolism works faster. Some people can gain weight a lot faster then others also, and it's the same reason I'm guessing. We are all built in different ways of course but I know how frustrating it can be myself but not because of losing weight, but the exact opposite, I am trying to put weight on and no matter how much I eat I still can't seem to gain the amount of weight that I want.

    Exactly it all depends on your metabolism levels or the rate at which your body burns calories. So you should focus more on your exercise and do things that can burn your calories faster. It is seen that adding some weights to your workout session increases metabolism levels.

    Also important is to have a good sound sleep at night every day. According to experts if you are stressed up your metabolism levels will go down and result in obesity. Stress activates a hormone called cortisol that slow down the process. So follow a balanced workout plan, be relaxed, entertained and always be health conscious about what you eat and drink; you can achieve your desired metabolism levels and weight.

    One reason may be because fat distribution is not the same in human beings. The way fat is distributed in your body determines how fast you lose it. Genetics and cell or body structure cause us to respond differently to various types of exercises that's why it's advisable to try out different types of exercise.

    Genetics and hormones play the major role in weight changes. Of course externally, factors like diet and exercises add on to this make up.

    Others have diseases which make them put on or lose weight naturally like thyroid diseases and DM just to mention a few.

    Re: Why Do Some People Lose Weight Faster Than Others?

    Sleep is extremely important like you say, and I think that not enough people actually take that into consideration when we are talking about losing (or gaining) weight and maintaining a healthy, well balanced diet. To become and stay healthy then obviously diet and exercise is important but so is rest and relaxation as well. If our bodies aren't getting enough rest then that will also be unhealthy, and no matter what you eat or drink, or how much you exercise your body will always be stressed out due to lack of sleep if you don't know how to relax and switch off.

    It's all about genetics and how fast our metabolism is. If we have ever heard about the HGH that really explains a lot about what happens inside our body.

    Re: Why Do Some People Lose Weight Faster Than Others?

    When I was younger, some of my officemates are envioius of my metabolism. We eat together and I even eat a bigger volume than what they have on their plates. We do sports activities together too. But I remain trim and quite skinny actually while most of them were having a problem with the weighing scale. I think I was 30 at that time just like most of my office mates. My metabolism normalized when I was past 40 which made me gain weight naturally (even if I maintained the volume of food I eat).

    Some people are just genetically blessed with being able to cut up or put on muscle.

    Re: Why Do Some People Lose Weight Faster Than Others?

    It has to do with one's metabolic function. Some people have a slow
    metabolism and add weight quickly even with low done intake. Others
    the converse applies. Then again there is the issue of one's choice of
    food and eating habits. For instance, if you eat before sleeping at
    night, you are likely to gain weight fast as the body is at rest at
    night.

    Re: Why Do Some People Lose Weight Faster Than Others?

    Some people lose weight faster because of the metabolism, hormones and health conditions. There is also a genetic factor, some people are basically built a little bit chunkier and there is no fix.
    The faster metabolism will give you faster results, but a person will also be tired faster and in a case of the insufficient nutrients a body will start to replenish from its own resources.
    The hormones can be a BIG factor, especially for the girls because our bodies are always in some sort of the tension.
    Certain health conditions can cause a person not to sweat, for example, so the weight will go down slowly or accumulate a bigger percentage of a body fat, unlike a person who is healthy.

    Genetics may affect the degree of weight loss/gain of a person, also exercise and diet. Age is also a factor since young people has alot faster metabolism than old people.

    With the genes, it is a yes and no for me because my parents are both chubby but I was a skinny lad and I only gained weight when I reached 40. It is the metabolism that is the main factor for weight gain. My wife is also like me, skinny when young but now that she is past 50, she is overweight and nearing the obese level. And in this age, we have to scrimp on food. Eating less is the order of the day and more exercise is a must.

    Some people are just lucky and can eat whatever they want and lose weight, while others not really. Genetic heritage at it's best.

    Re: Why Do Some People Lose Weight Faster Than Others?

    It probably has something to do with genetics. Both my parents are skinny, but I have a feeling that I will gain weight when I get married and as I became older.

    Some people have faster metabolism than others, and it may be because of their occupation or food intake and eating preferences and habits. Nutrition and Genetics play an important role in both weight-loss and weight gain.

    I think the most important is the diet we have, regardless of the exercise we make, we need to be very careful about what we eat.

    I know, I've been having the same problem, it seems that when she is creeping up on you, your metabolism suddenly slows down and it's getting harder and harder to keep fit and in good shape. Someone should really invent a drug to make older people's metabolic rate faster.
