According to a study carried on 1,850 adults, a large percentage of men even went as far as to declare that dieting is 'easy' and the stats showed men are better at losing weight over both long and short timescales, the Mirror reported.

It was also revealed if men do start putting a few pounds back on after reaching their target weight, they do so more slowly and combining exercise with a healthy diet was by far and away the favourite diet method of men (28 percent) while the second most popular choice was walking more (23 percent). Cutting out fat was third (20 percent).

However men and women were both as reluctant to give up booze in a bid to lose weight with a mere 13 percent prepared to give up alcohol and more women than men are eating their five a day in a bid to beat the bulge - 15 percent compared to 9 percent.

But the survey revealed that a plus point for women was that they tend to set more realistic weight-loss targets but they did admit they often lack the willpower to stick to their planned diet schedule, as women were also more likely to combine exercise with a healthy diet than men, with almost four in ten revealing this as their chosen weight-loss method.
