Very few companies place an emphasis on androcentrism when it comes to marketing their diet plans, but perhaps they should; men and women are obviously different, both from a physiological standpoint and in their perceptions, when it comes to dieting. Therefore, it stands to reason that a diet plan aimed specifically at men would be more effective, than one that was designed to be universal. Nutrisystem, a provider of weight loss products and services, has acknowledged this fact and as a result, has launched Nutrisystem for Men.
So, what makes this plan so different? Well, Nutrisystem took into consideration that men lose weight differently than women, they recognized that men have a higher percentage of muscle mass, which works to naturally boost metabolism. This means that men can take in more calories than women, and still lose weight, which enables Nutrisystem to create diet plans calculated just for men.
Obviously, some people may perceive this article as being sexist, but Nutrisystem’s male-centric approach is rooted in science; women produce a higher percentage of estrogen, making it much more difficult for them to lose weight. While men, on the other hand, have a smaller percentage of estrogen and a higher degree of testosterone, which makes it possible for them to build muscle and lose weight.
Now that we have addressed the physiological differences between men and women, how does Nutrisystem, as a diet plan, help men achieve a healthy weight? It comes down to caloric intake. Nutrisystem recognizes that in order for men to start losing weight they will have to be restricted to 1500 calories per day.
So, what foods can you eat based on this calorie cap? Fortunately, Nutrisystem for Men has a robust assortment of healthy and delicious tasting foods to choose from including meatballs in marinara sauce, tuna melts, waffles, pancakes, mushroom stuffed chicken breast, and much, much more. For those who are interested in achieving results even faster, Nutrisystem offers a diet plan referred to as “Nutrisystem Lean 13 for Men.”
This particular plan is aimed at those interested in turbocharging their weight loss journey; it is designed to help men achieve results in as little as 7 days and is comprised of custom designed meals, protein shakes, and protein bars. After the 7 days, you will continue with the Nutrisystem for Men diet plan. According to Nutrisystem, men can expect to lose as much as 13 pounds within the first month, if they combine both diet systems.
