If we made a list detailing the differences that exist between men and women it would seem as if the list never ended. There are differences in the way that we think, the way that we feel about certain situations, and there are differences in our physical strength and endurance. Because of this, the nutritional requirements for both men and women are drastically different.

There are certain aspects of nutrition that women need to play special attention to simply because of the stresses that nature and biology put on them throughout their lives. Men also need to be cognizant of the nutritional requirements that they have.

Now to be fair, there are some general health requirements that are the same for both men and women. For example if both men and women overeat, or under eat, they are going to have adverse health effects. Also, if both men and women choose to eat food that is unhealthy, they are going to have negative side effects. That being said, a man’s nutritional needs are usually going to be more than that of a woman simply because of the fact that on average men are larger than women, and their bodies are made up of mostly muscle.

Because of this, men are going to need to take in more calories on average than women. It is thought that a man, who is in good health and weighs approximately 180 pounds is going to need a little bit more than 2000 cal every single day just to have his body function. A woman, however, who weighs in at 130 pounds is only going to need about 1400 cal a day.

Another example of the differences in the nutritional needs of men and women can be seen when we examine the amount of protein that both men and women need in their diet. Obviously, both men and women need to have a good amount of protein in their diet. However men generally need a higher protein content than women do. This is especially the case if the man engages in physical activities throughout the day.

A good way for a man to determine the amount of protein that he needs to intake everyday is to take his weight and divided by 2.2. This is going to give you an approximate figure of the amount of protein that you need. Often times many will erroneously think that they get enough protein throughout their normal diet. But in the majority of cases this is not true.
