The effects of overweight and obesity are widely recognised as one of Australia’s leading health
concerns, involving all age and socioeconomic groups. These Guidelines are designed for use primarily at the level of the individual who is overweight or obese, while acknowledging that individual choices are shaped by the wider environmental and social context. The evidence-based recommendations and practice points focus on clinical and physical aspects of care.
