Weight Management

Weight Management

Currently in Australia it is estimated that around 12 million people, or 1 in 3 people, are overweight or obese, based on their body mass index (BMI). Carrying excess body fat can increase your risk of a number of chronic health problems including diabetes, cardiovascular/heart disease and various cancers.

By actively losing weight, particularly excess body fat, you can dramatically reduce your risk of developing these diseases and improve your overall health including optimising blood pressure, cholesterol levels and the need to take medications.

There are many different ways to lose weight and reduce excess body fat including:

  • Adopting healthy eating practices and watching portion sizes
  • Calorie-controlled meal plans
  • Ketogenic diets (low carbohydrate)
  • The 5:2 diet (includes two days of very low calorie intake – ‘fasting’)
  • Rapid weight loss programs
  • Slow and steady weight loss programs
