Women’s health is at serious risk from obesity, according to England’s chief medical officer Dame Sally Davies. She says tackling the UK’s weight problem should be a national priority.
Latest figures show 51% of women aged 25-34 are overweight or obese, rising to 63% by the time women are between 45 and 54. Men are even more likely to weigh too much, with almost 80% per cent of men aged 45-54 classed as overweight or obese.

The health service, the food industry and supermarkets have all been blamed for not doing enough to tackle the size of the nation’s waistbands. But what are some of the practical things people can do to help improve their own health and well-being?

It sounds obvious, but what you put in your body is going to directly affect your weight. Cooking meals from scratch means you know exactly what ingredients have gone into your food.
Tam Fry, from the National Obesity Forum, says: “Learning how to cook fresh food is really the number one thing to consider when tackling obesity and improving weight loss. Of course that means you have to have access to a kitchen and a certain amount of time, which isn’t possible for everyone, but if you can cook your own food you should try.”
Swap unhealthy and high-energy food choices – such as fast food, processed ready meals and sugary drinks, including alcohol – for healthier choices. According to theBritish Dietetic Association, eating 400g of fruit and vegetables a day can also help lower the risk of high blood pressure and some cancers. Read fuul article…
