Sometimes as females we imagine we have a monopoly on trying to coax our body into the ideal shape.  I’m a regular gym go-er and I can attest that there are just as many guys chasing their dream body as girls!

The big difference I think, is females have had generations of diets and exercise programs tailor just for them. Everyone from Jane Fonda to Jennifer Anniston has had something to say about health and fitness for women.

Guys on the other hand, haven’t really had a big strong man giving them pointers on getting buff and lean.

I probably don’t need to remind you that men and women are very different when it comes to their daily calories and nutritional needs.  Also the types of work and exercise men do can be heavier than that of the average girl.

So my point is, diet and exercise for men and women is different and needs to be approach as such. After all, there aren’t to many guys ready to try the “Zone Diet in the hope of achieving a Jennifer Aniston figure.
