Hot Health | Focus on Men's Health

Networking from 5:00pm with nibbles and drinks

Obesity; a big problem for men in Aotearoa

Dr Fiona Doolan-Noble | Department of General Practice and Rural Health

Hot Health_identifierMore men in New Zealand are overweight or obese than women, with overweight and obesity increasing more for men than women over the last couple of decades. The weight and weight management literature invariably focuses on women and their experiences of weight loss attempts and stigmatisation. Within weight studies the male voice is hard to hear. This qualitative study sought to understand the experiences of New Zealand men living large, including their interactions in general practice.
