MEN ad­mit they are too SCARED to tell their wife or girl­friend they need to lose weight.

Three times as many men as women say they would be fright­ened to con­front their part­ner about be­ing over­weight.

Al­most a third of men said they would find it hard­est to point out an ex­cess of lard.

But just 10 per cent of women would find it dif­fi­cult to tell their man to go on a diet, ac­cord­ing to new re­search from the In­ter­na­tional Chair on Car­diometabolic Risk.

Pro­fes­sor David Haslam of the National Obe­sity Fo­rum said: “Sug­gest­ing to some­one they should lose a few pounds may not be a com­fort­able con­ver­sa­tion to have.”
