I get this all the time... "It's just unfair that men can lose weight soooo easily compared to us women." Okay, well check THIS out...

Women who exercise for 150 minutes per week will lower their risk of death significantly more than men who do the same. That's according to a new observational study suggesting that when it comes to exercise, women can do less and benefit more. "The beauty of this study is learning that women can get more out of each minute of moderate to vigorous activity than men do," Cedars-Sinai cardiologist Dr. Martha Gulati, co-author of the study published Monday in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, tells CBS News. Researchers asked 412,413 US adults about their exercise habits every few years from 1997 to 2019—a period in which almost 40,000 participants died, including 11,670 from cardiovascular issues.
