Eat better to achieve a healthy weight

What does a healthy weight mean to you?

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.

 

What other things could losing weight help you achieve?

-A greater chance of conceiving

-Increased energy

-More time with the kids

-Catch your breath

-No more yo yo dieting

 

It’s never too late to start! Losing just 5-10 per cent of your starting weight, or dropping a few centimetres from your waist, will reduce the risk of disease and helps you feel healthy in the long term.

Australia’s Healthy Weight Week gives you the tools to kick-start healthy eating habits that start in your own kitchen.
