CENTRAL Queensland men are more likely to be overweight than their female partners, a recent study has shown.
A shocking 65% of Queensland men are classified as overweight or obese.
In an effort to combat this trend, Jenny Craig ambassador, Shane Jacobson, has launch the Mates in Every State program, and is calling for Aussie men from Central Queensland to buddy up and join him on his quest to drop the kilos.
Many people in Emerald would have rubbed shoulders with Shane, if not with his mate Paul Hogan, when the pair was in Emerald filming the father-son road trip comedy, Charlie and Boots.
The new initiative from Jenny Craig aims to build Australia’s biggest ever weight loss “support network” for men, with Shane as the leader and mentor. He will be hitting the road to visit his “mates” across Australia.
“Everyone deserves to live a long and healthy life, so I encourage my mates in Central Queensland to join me and commit to a healthy lifestyle,” he said.
One “mate” in every state, will be offered the chance to meet Shane, and be part of the Jen4men program at no cost. Men can register and follow Shane online at www.matesineverystate.com.au. Registration closes April 30.
