Weight problems have a big impact on health, confidence, relationships and wellbeing and with results from the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ National Health Survey showing that 11.2 million Australians were overweight or obese in 2014-2015 – it is a growing problem.¹
Many people are trying to do something about losing weight and improving their health, but unfortunately, are often attracted to media-advertised diet plans that promise rapid weight loss with ‘miracle pills’, unusual foods or cutting out entire food groups. These plans are not supervised by a Dietitian or Medical Practitioner, risk injuring the patient’s health, and fail to achieve success in the long-term.
At Your Health Hub, we specialise in weight management. Our weight loss team is dedicated to providing you with the support and inspiration you need to reach your goals and make life-long changes to your health and well-being. Take the first step and call us today on 03 6122 0150.
