In a nutshell: This study was a randomised controlled trial of 747 male football fans aged 35-65. Participants in the intervention group received a 12 session weekly weight loss and healthy living programme, and were assessed after one year. The researchers found that the programme helped to achieve changes in weight loss, blood pressure, self-reported physical activity and other areas. It succeeded in reaching high-risk men who were not attracted to other weight management programmes.
