The Department of Health has released the Healthy Weight Guide (the Guide). The Guide consists of a website as well as supporting resources that have been developed to help Australians achieve and maintain a healthy weight.
The Healthy Weight Guide website contains information and tools that will guide users to:
- Set goals and plan healthy meals and physical activity
- Monitor what they do and manage challenges
- Find information and support that will guide them along the way.
The primary audience for the Guide is the Australian general public. However, organisations and health professionals may also find the Guide useful as a resource for gaining background information on healthy weight issues or for suggesting to consumers as a practical tool to assist them in achieving and maintaining a healthy weight.
The Guide includes links to a variety of relevant sources and a page is included for each state and territory that provides links to state and territory specific programmes and resources.
