Men score a winner with weight loss goals

A football weight loss programme exclusively for men who want to lose unwanted pounds celebrated the end of a successful season this week.

61 men who have taken part in the national MAN v FAT Football project have lost a combined weight of 44.4 stone during the 14-week programme.

MAN v FAT Football combines organised and competitive sport with an easy to follow diet and 24/7 online and offline support.

I joined the Man v Fat Football programme to get healthier and try to lose some weight.

It has been a complete lifestyle change and by taking part I have lost two stone and two pounds, which is nearly 10% of my body weight.

It has been hard but with the support of the group and playing football it didn’t seem like a weight loss programme.  I now feel better than ever and motivated to keep losing.

George, current Man v Fat participant

There are traditional weigh-ins before each game which are followed by a 30-minute game of 6-a-side football.  Players are put into teams and battle against each other in their own Man v Fat Football league.

Liz Barton-Jones, Head of Sport and Wellbeing added: “It’s great to see how much weight the men have lost.  I have seen how hard it has been for them and how much work they have put in. Obesity is a problem in the region and by offering a programme like this at the Beacon of Light we aim to continue to help making a change.”

MAN v FAT is delivered form the Beacon of Light, Sunderland’s newest sports, events, health and education venue which includes a 4G indoor rooftop football barn capable of hosting a 7-a-side and 5-a-side games, a versatile indoor arena and six outdoor 5-a-side 3G pitches as well as classrooms, offices and informal learning spaces.

To sign up for the next course which will commence on Wednesday 19th September or for further information visit manvfatfootball.org/sunderland or email neil.jones@foundationoflight.co.uk
