Perfect time to put health first during Healthy Weight Week

IF you've put getting healthy on the backburner, now is the perfect time to start as it's Healthy Weight Week.

The Dietitians Association of Australia has urged 18-25 year old women in particular to kick-start healthy eating habits.

"We want to raise awareness of weight issues in younger women, and help them get to a healthy weight sensibly - instead of trying to lose 20 or 30 kilos when they reach 50, which is far more difficult," said Dietitians Association of Australia spokeswoman Clare Collins.
