Obesity used to be considered a disease of western society. Now it’s regarded as a global epidemic.
Australia is no exception with insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, atherosclerosis, type 2 diabetes and other weight-associated health problems all on the rise.
Diet and lifestyle changes can have a significant impact. According to a report by Obesity Australia, reducing body weight by just 5-10% can have a beneficial effect on both metabolism and heart health.
