Workplace POWER (Preventing Obesity Without Eating like a Rabbit), is a multi-award winning, evidence-based program teaching men how to adopt a realistic and sustainable approach to weight loss – without having to eat like a rabbit or give up beer.

A credible, proven weight loss program for men

Workplace POWER has been developed by a team of experts in weight loss, exercise physiology, physical activity, psychology and nutrition from the University of Newcastle’s Priority Research Centre in Physical Activity and Nutrition, led by internationally-renowned obesity expert for men, Professor Philip Morgan.

Workplace POWER has been tailored to the psychology and physiology of men, tested in many years of research and improved in response to the feedback from hundreds of men who have successfully used the program.

There are no group sessions, weekly meetings, restrictive diets, ongoing payments, pills, potions or fads. We know that men can lose weight without giving up the things they love.

Workplace POWER is easy to use and has delivered outstanding, sustained weight-loss results in rigorous randomised controlled trial testing, with men who use the program as recommended losing almost 10kgs throughout the 12 week program (4-5kg on average). These results are comparable with intensive weight loss programs that require multiple face-to-face sessions.

What is Workplace POWER?

Workplace POWER is a 12-week, self-directed course tailored to appeal to men, with an introductory information session conveniently delivered at the workplace.

Program inclusions:
  • An initial face-to-face information session teaching the science of long-term weight management
  • A resource package teaching sustainable weight-loss that uses ‘blokey’ humour to engage men and make the information stick
  • Weekly SMS messages to keep you on track
