Obesity management

The prevalence of obesity in Australia has doubled in the past 20 years, making it one of the fattest nations in the world. Figures released in October 2013 by the National Health Reporting Authority report that a staggering 63 percent of Australians are overweight with 28 percent or 11 million adults falling into the obese category.

Among the biggest health threats obesity imposes are a higher incidence of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure (hypertension).
