Obesity has become a major health concern across the country…here in Sudbury 63 per cent of the population is either overweight or obese.
The Heart & Stroke Foundation recently created the Healthy Weight Action Plan, an online structured program which is similar to meeting with a weight loss counsellor over 12 sessions.
Dr Sean Wharton calls it a lifestyle change that goes beyond short term goals.
He says success is not always measured by what’s on the scale.
Director of Research at the Heart & Stroke Foundation, Dr Marco Di Buono, says success comes with lifestyle changes not quick fixes.
The free personalized plan provides support for users to adopt healthier eating habits.
