Battle of the Sexes: Men vs Women Nutrient Needs
With men and women so different, it's no surprise that good eats and good nutrition for the fairer sex follows a different formula than the list of foods good for dudes.
In the final analysis, nutritional differences between men and women turn out to be subtle ones. Most of the variance is really a size thing; women are smaller and less muscular so require fewer calories. Yes, women may need a little more calcium, a little more iron, and a little less alcohol, but general consensus is that both sexes benefit from the same healthy diet strategies—plenty of whole grains, healthy fats, lots of fruits and vegetables, and lean sources of dairy and protein.
