IS GUYS LOSE WEIGHT FOR MEN ONLY?

Updated: Jan 7


 


WHY IS THIS CALLED "GUYS" LOSE WEIGHT?


My goal is a welcoming place for guys to feel supported doing their work around weight loss and body image, which can be awkward and uncomfortable. There's no place to go as a guy to find a connection with others who struggle with their weight. Finding out you aren't alone is the beginning of change and the end of shame and isolation.


I've been fortunate to experience many exceptional eating, weight loss, and body image programs and coaching over the years. The majority of the participants are female, which is no surprise given:

  • Pressures from messaging targeted at women in our society

  • Men being less likely to seek help (asking for directions) with emotional eating.


Fewer people understand the guy's version of this pressure exists for men with its devastating effects and need for support beyond a plan for food and exercise. That need is growing, and I'm here to fill the gap with an offering geared for men to feel comfortable and safe discussing what has been a very lonely struggle for most of us.


"So, is this just for men?"


Program materials are in he/him format, which is an essential component of the healing process, but everyone is welcome. The gender, sexuality, ethnicity, and faith of community members are individual traits we celebrate together, sharing the common ground overcoming the obstacles holding us back.


Everyone is welcome to participate at guysloseweight.com!
