Excess weight, especially obesity, is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes, some musculoskeletal conditions and some cancers.
As the level of excess weight increases, so does the risk of developing these conditions. In addition, being overweight can hamper the ability to control or manage chronic disorders.
The latest statistics have shown that 3 in 5 Australians are overweight or obese (based on BMI). That’s over 12 million people.
