RUCST | Man v Fat

8 January 2019

The gentlemen are showing us how it’s done with some fantastic weight loss over the last 9 months in our Man v Fat Football weight loss league.

Man v Fat Football is part of a national programme which aims to help men lose weight. Players sign up online where they are teamed with 9 other men to make a team. Weekly 6 aside games of football follow a weigh in where players score extra goals for losing weight as well as for completing their food diary. Bonus goals are scored when players lose 5% and 10% of their starting body weight. Players join a team whatsapp where they are supported by their team mates, and receive weekly diet advice from coaches. Each 14 week season ends with medals and trophies for the overall league winners and the weight loss winners.
