Sex difference and food

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - Men and women have their differences down to the way each breaks down food in the body.

“It’s not one size fits all when it comes to nutrition," says health writer Staness Jonekos. She teamed up with Dr. Marjorie Jenkins, a leader in six biology research, to write a book about the foods best suited for women.

Here are some of the important findings outlined in 'Eat Like A Woman'

Salmon--rich in Omega 3s and great for women going through menopause; absorbed better than a pill for women

Bananas-- helps women with insomnia; women suffer 2-3 times more from insomnia

Cauliflower--it makes women bloated; eat less of the vegetable to avoid that uncomfortable feeling

Cinnamon-- fights fat storage; women have more fat than men

Turkey-- men absorb tryptophan better than women; women should eat more of it
