Manatomy is a place where well-known men talk honestly about their bodies. It’s not about getting thinner or fitter or putting on muscle – it’s about being funny and honest. We cover secret vanities, bizarre insecurities, muscle, fat, broken bones, damaged pride and the magnetic appeal of cheese. You will laugh, gasp and feel part of a warm awkward, human family.
