Nigel Clapham from Market Rasen is proof in the pudding that men make the best slimmers.
The Slimming World organisation says studies show men lose more weight than women. Male slimmers lose an average 6.1 per cent of their weight over three months compared with 4.6 per cent for women.
Nigel has now been named Market Rasen’s Slimming World Man of the Year 2014 after losing 1st and 11.5lbs thanks to a healthy eating programme coupled with exercise.
He believed slimming groups were for women only, but on joining Slimming World now advocates men should join as well as women.
The group promotes activity as well as healthy eating, something Nigel says has given him more energy.
Shona Drew, who runs Market Rasen Slimming World group, says Nigel is proof men too can benefit from such groups. For more call Shona on 01472 399649
