Guys, are you tired of being treated like a second class citizen when it comes to finding weight loss advice?
Did you know that in Canada there are more overweight men than overweight women?
New! In the past two decades, the rate of obesity has increased significantly in Canada. During this time, the rate of obesity for Canadian men increased by about ten percent. Among women, the increase was only about eight percent. The greatest increase was seen among men aged between 60 and 75, and the largest increase among women was seen in the 20 to 40 age group.
It's true! In a recent Statistics Canada survey*, 23.9 percent of Canadian women were obese** and 24.3 percent of Canadian men were obese. Despite this statistic, obesity and weight gain/weight loss products are still marketed almost exclusively towards women. Men are almost never considered when Canadian weight loss companies plan their advertising campaigns. Here at MensWeightLoss.ca, we hope to change the imbalance and bring current weight loss news to Canadian men - after all, we need it more!
* The Canadian numbers are based on results of the Canadian Health Measures Survey.
** For men and women 20 years of age and older, obesity is determined by a body mass index (BMI) of 30.0 or higher.
Canadians have many diet systems and programs to choose from but don't believe everything you read. Many advertisements that you read are for American programs that do not serve Canada.
Eating right can still be tasty and enjoyable. Depending on which weight loss program you follow, you would be surprised what you are allowed to eat. Sticking to a diet may be easier than you think!
You may never look like one of those ripped guys who spend all their time at the gym but with a little work you can look and feel better. Plus, you can do most of that work at home without a gym membership.
