Only 5% of men currently attend commercial weigh loss services, despite over 65% of them being overweight or obese. Obesity it often seen as a womens issue and many of the programmes are set up with women in mind. Men and women opperate very differently and the way we deliver services and advice should reflect this if we are to have any impact. Over the past 15 years I have run men’s health services in some interesting places including pubs, a barbers shop, Harley-Davidson show room, motorway service stations , truck stops and bus depots. It is interesting how men often perceive themselves and their weight and this talk will highlight some of the findings in my work.

This talk is part of the The obesity epidemic: Discussing the global health crisis series.
