Australia’s Healthy Weight Week is an ideal time to kick-start healthy eating habits. Carrying too much weight, especially around your waist, puts you at a higher risk of lifestyle-related conditions, such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
But the good news is that losing just 5-10 per cent of your starting weight, or dropping a few centimetres from your waist, will reduce this risk and benefit your health and wellbeing in the long term. Being a healthy weight helps you to feel your best – and it’s never too late to start!
Take a look at the healthy eating tips on the pages linked below to help you make positive changes to your eating habits to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.
