Yes, Men have more muscle mass than women, especially in the upper body. Women usually have a greater percentage of body fat. Muscle is more metabolically active than fat, giving men a 5 – 10% higher metabolic rate than women. So men start out at an advantage — they burn more calories, even at rest.
