Pam and her husband started Dr. Oz's new diet after watching the show and decided to get healthy together. Pam says her husband's body responded immediately, and he even lost a whole pants size in 10 days! But on Day 17, Pam says she's only lost two inches off her waist. She's working just as hard, so why is her husband losing faster?

The answer, Dr. Oz says, comes down to muscle. "Men tend to lose a little faster because they have more muscle mass," Oz says.

If Pam had more muscle, Dr. Oz says she would lose the weight faster. "Walking and lifting weights build up those core muscles and that's actually how you drop the weight quickly," Oz says. "The beauty of that is as the weight comes off, you can continue to eat and sometimes even eat more because the muscle consumes so many calories."
