Module 1 review
In module 1, you were introduced to the frightening facts of the rates of being overweight in Australia and around the world. It highlighted the alarming statistic that it is now the highest cause of preventable deaths in Australia and if we do not act now, our children will have a poor future.
Common weight related medical co-morbidities are diabetes, cardiovascular disease, stroke, cancers, arthritis and mental health issues. You were also asked to explore your own weight history and motivations for losing weight.
Please review your homework from the 1st module.
