Weight Loss & Maintenance Strategies

Weight Loss & Maintenance Strategies

Weight Loss  

Carrying excess weight increases your risk of developing many chronic diseases such as:

  • Type 2 Diabetes;
  • High Blood Pressure;
  • High Cholesterol;
  • Some Cancers; and
  • Joint Issues.

Excess weight around the middle section of the body is associated with an increased risk of these illnesses – so it is important to keep your waistline under 90 cm for males, and 83 cm for females.

Being overweight may also increase the risk of nutritional deficiencies as many high energy foods have very low nutritional value.
