Men's Health Week 2017 will run from 12-18 June.
This year we'll be focusing on belly fat. Why? Because it's the type of fat that's bad for your health and men are more likely to have it.
It's a problem because belly fat lurks not just beneath the surface but also gets down deep and surrounds your vital organs. Regardless of your overall weight, a large amount of belly fat increases your risk of:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes
- Colorectal cancer
- Sleep apnea
- Premature death from any cause
- High blood pressure
So, men need to get those tape measures out.
Men's Health Week will be a fat lot of good without your participation. So what should we do for June 2017? We're looking for some belly good suggestions.
