Traditional diet plans don’t always work for men. Often, they can feel overly restrictive, boring and drain your lust for life. But it doesn’t have to be that way – as ever, football is here to rescue you from your woe.
MAN v FAT Football know the deal: it’s why they set up their ingenious football leagues for blokes like you who simply want to lose weight, bringing together like-minded individuals focused on achieving the same goal. There’s no catch, and no strings: just a fine alternative for men looking to start their weight-loss journey, supported by nutrition and diet advice to help them hit their targets. Wouldn’t it be nice to reach the top of the stairs without keeling over in a wheezing heap?
Over 20,000 men have already used MAN v FAT Football to slim down. There are currently over 4,200 active players having a kickabout in 70+ leagues across the UK, so there’s a good chance you’ll find one near you.
In an assessed 14-week pilot scheme run by Solihull Council, players lost 22lbs on average, with 62% hitting their 5% body weight target. The maximum weight lost by one player was 67lbs, while the maximum bodyweight percentage lost was 26%. 90% of players lose weight.
By following their programme, MAN v FAT Football vow to get you fitter and healthier within those 14 weeks. Games are supported by a full fixture list, but winning matches on the pitch isn’t what matters most – instead, players can also score weight-loss ‘bonus goals’ for their teams; that is, for every two men who shed pounds, they get an extra goal to contribute to their on-pitch result. Three cheers for the losers, indeed.
MAN v FAT Football isn’t about football ability; it’s about coming together and pulling each other through for a common cause. And like most things, it’s easier to do it with others. Stats say that 80% of players sign up individually, so there’s no need to be part of a team when you join either.
