    I've not heard of a company that just provides packs for men, but some vlcd (I think celebrity slim is one) do larger sizes for men probably cos they need more calories than women - unfair or what

    SW, minimal bread!
    CD do a programme for men, they get an extra pack a day.
    Lighter Life - has a "LL for men" programme
    WW sometimes do a mens club if there is enough demand in the area

    All diets give men extra allowance due to their increased muscle mass and therefor higher resting metabolic rate.

    It could be lipotrim.
    Females are allowed 3 shakes a day.
    Men are only allowed 2 shakes a day, but these are bigger portions than females.
