Weight management

Almost 1 in 3 adults are deemed to be obese.

Issues around consistent weight management can occur for many reasons. New Zealand has one of the highest obesity rates in the OECD for both adults and children. The term obesity is a medical term used to describe being too heavy for your height. Being overweight or having a weight that fluctuates dramatically can have significant effects on your long-term health both physically and mentally as well as the health and wellbeing of your children. Long term weight management requires a targeted and realistic approach that fits your lifestyle.
