BACKGROUND

Obesity has become a global epidemic. It is a major risk factor for hypertension and associated cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and some types of cancer. Consequently, well-being and productivity are negatively affected. Many people are faced with premature disability and death due to excessive weight gain. One important contributing factor to the obesity epidemic is our food choices and diet.

Over the past decades, many diet plans or schemes have been proposed to addresses overweight and obesity-related issues. But, did you ask yourself why, despite what people do, many still find it difficult to lose weight and regain control of their health? Well, they could be many reasons. However, it is important to point out that the various diets plans are confusing and some are difficult to follow.

Of course, some diet plans provide you with short-term solutions and therefore not sustainable; whilst some are fundamentally wrong and do not have any scientific basis. Life is about balance and this can be achieved through a better nutrition education that is informed by science.
