Men ARE fat

It is not just women who feel unattractive at certain times of the month. Men are just as likely to suffer "fat days", feeling less confident about their appearance and suffering from low self esteem, a new study suggests.

According to a survey of more than 5,000 men, 34 percent said feeling unattractive gives them less confidence to initiate sex with their partner, the Telegraph reports. Almost one in six men agree that low self esteem about their appearance impacts their confidence in bed and more than a quarter would consider losing weight to boost their performance.

To help tackle the issue, health company Pfizer, in partnership with leading British health organisations, has launched a service Man MOT (Monday Opportunity to Talk) for men who lack confidence or time to visit their general practitioners (GPs). Tracey Cox of Man MOT said: "Men shouldn't be suffering in silence, there's lot of help out there, offering real solutions to improving sexual confidence and performance."

Men will have the opportunity to seek advice on any health issues they may be worried or concerned about and browse a range of health publications online. Berkeley Phillips, Medical Director at Pfizer said: "We know there are a lot of men out there avoiding their GP completely, leaving health issues untreated until they require immediate medical attention."
