I've just been watching the regional news and one of the stories covered was about how many people are overweight and how men are more likely to be chronically obese than women. It told of a weight watchers group in Bristol (I think it was Bristol, I was only half listening) which caters exclusively to men. The men interviewed, some of which had been referred to ww by their gp spoke about how they felt more comfortable knowing that women wouldn't be in attendance and didn't have to endure discussions about women's dress sizes etc. It got me thinking about SW and my group - the only man I've ever seen there weighs and leaves before image therapy. Is weight loss really that much of a taboo to men? Would the male population on here feel more comfortable attending group if it wasn't so dominated by women? Do you think segregated groups like this are a good idea.
