It used to be that only women were worried about their looks and the shape of their body.

But these days, because obesity is such a big -- and growing -- problem, guys are just as concerned.

According to a recent survey, men are desperate to lose weight.

 

Among the survey results ...

Increasing numbers of men are wearing "control pants," which are pretty much girdles for guys.

Of the guys who have tried losing weight, 40 percent complained that they returned to their pre-diet weight -- or got even heavier -- after finishing their diet.

20 percent of guys who have attempted a diet at some point in their lives said they never lost any weight.
