Happy new year! We had a great festive period but are sick to death of mince pies and booze now and we are so ready for that January health kick. If you are too, here are a few ways MAN v FAT will help you lose weight and hit your goals in 2018…

Join a MAN v FAT Football league

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that we run MAN v FAT Football leagues – leagues designed to support men of any fitness level who want to lose weight. We’re FA-endorsed, extremely successful (sort of blowing our own trumpet but hey, 95% of players lose weight and the average weight loss per player is 2 stone, which is pretty good) and we’re launching LOADS of new leagues all around the country in January. And if your local town or city isn’t on our list, don’t fret as we’ll be announcing even more new leagues later on in the year. You can get more info and sign up over on the MAN v FAT Football website.

Join the MAN v FAT Forum

The forum is a great place to find support and motivation no matter what stage you’re at in your weight loss journey. If you’ve got a question about weight loss, food or exercise, chances are there’s someone on the forum who knows the answer or has been through it themselves. Sign up here and go introduce yourself, we’re a friendly bunch.

Join a MVFIA group

A fantastic part of the forum, MVFIA is a 30-day free weight loss program where you’re put into a private group with other men who want to lose weight. The idea is that your online group holds you accountable and you can lean on them for support and a boost when you need it. It’s a very simple idea, but it’s one that works – it’s incredibly popular on the forum and 80% of men who take part lose weight (with the average loss being 8lbs). It’s also a good way of meeting some men in similar circumstances. See this post over on the forum for details.

Read our blog

We’ve got lots of exciting things coming up on the blog in 2018 – competitions, lots of Amazing Loser transformations, recipes, reviews, expert help to get you shifting the pounds…it’s all good. You can follow us on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram to get our latest posts and other news from our world in your feed. You can also sign up here for our weekly emails to get a little boost of motivation straight to your inbox every Monday. 

We’re pretty optimistic about making 2018 a healthy year (although ask us that again in March and I’m not so sure we’d be quite as positive, isn’t that always the way?!) and we want to know what your thoughts are – are you aiming to make 2018 the year you lose weight? How are you going to make it happen? Let us know over on the forum!
