Helping you prevent diabetes, heart disease and stroke
Over the last 30 years, the proportion of Australians who are obese has skyrocketed to more than 28% of adults.
Being above your healthy weight increases your risk of Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke. It can also have serious consequences on your mental and emotional health and your capacity to lead a fulfilling life.
The result is an evidence-based approach we call Life! - the Melbourne weight loss and diabetes prevention program for people who want a positive way to turn their life around.
Led by Accredited Exercise Physiologist, Nicole French, Life! is free, accessible and comes with support and lots of useful information.
To date, people completing Life! reduced their waist measurement by an average of 4.7 centimetres - a real improvement!
Life!is a lifestyle modification program run by Diabetes Victoria and is supported by the Victorian Government. Delivered as a group course or as telephone coaching, Life! has helped 48,000 Victorians reduce their risk of chronic diseases.
