Busy lifestyles often make it difficult to maintain a healthy diet. Weight loss pills and fad diets seem to offer a quick fix but research shows that 95 per cent of dieters regain the weight they lost within one to five years.
The weight loss industry is worth billions of dollars yet obesity is increasing at a dramatic rate. According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare around 7.4 million Australians are overweight and almost one third of them are obese.
Being overweight increases the risk of a range of conditions including type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, coronary heart disease and certain cancers.
The mechanisms of weight loss are simple. In order to lose weight a person must consume fewer calories than they use. In other words, eat less and be more active. Unfortunately, this is easier said than done. A hectic schedule, bad habits and a lack of knowledge often lead to failure.
