SEXIST GPs are letting down tubby males by failing to ship them to weight loss courses, a research suggests.
Blokes at present account for only one in ten NHS-funded fatties at the likes of Weight Watchers and Slimming World.
But this jumped 400 per cent to 4 in ten after docs have been encouraged to discuss the choice with fellas during appointments.
Research leader Professor Paul Aveyard, from the University of Oxford, warned medics need to deal with the “gender bias”.
He stated GPs historically recommend men do “blokey issues”, corresponding to go to the fitness center, go for a run or play soccer, while suggesting weight management courses principally to ladies.
