Get your weight under control
In Australia, the percentage of people who are overweight or obese is increasing rapidly. If you carry extra weight as fat, your chances of developing life-threatening diseases such as coronary heart disease and diabetes are greatly increased. If you are overweight, start by making small, but sensible changes to your diet and lifestyle – short term, ‘quick-fix’ diets don’t work in the long term. Establish regular meal patterns, limit fats and fatty foods and incorporate regular exercise into your long-term lifestyle.
