It's time to shape up

As a nation, our waistlines are growing. Today, over 63% of Australian adults and one in four children are overweight or obese.

Unhealthy eating and not enough physical activity can lead to overweight and obesity, and an increased risk of developing a chronic disease such as some cancers, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

Shape Up Australia is an initiative to help Australians reduce their waist measurements and improve their overall health and wellbeing. There are many everyday changes you can make to help you Shape Up and get on your way to a healthier lifestyle.

Keep an eye out for the Shape Up Australia brand when looking for healthy lifestyle information, programs or services near you. All Shape Up Australia branded activities are evidence-based, meaning you can have confidence in the advice and support you receive.
