The aim of this guide is to encourage the development of weight-loss programmes that will deliver positive outcomes for men. It should be equally useful to those who would like to promote mixed-sex programmes.

This guide includes a summary of findings from the NIHR-funded review, and a number of case studies in which men describe their own experiences of weight-loss programmes. It also includes a short section on data collection and evaluation.
