I wrote a Press Release today in response to a popular news story which featured in national media. The article was about the staggering spend on weight loss aids that Australians have made this financial year – by the 30th June 2010, it is estimated that over $745 million would have be spent on weight loss (including surgery).

My response is:
A newly released IBIS industry report estimates that this financial year, Australians will spend a record $745.6 million on weight loss aids. This figure includes money spent on weight loss surgery but does not include gym memberships / personal trainers or other exercise related expenses. To read more, click on the link:
Spokesman for IBISWorld Ed Butler said demand for weight loss aids was expected to grow strongly beyond 2009-10. In fact, by 2015-16, this figure is said to increase to one billion dollars.
Sue Raward, naturopath for The Natural Way, says, “With our lifestyles becoming increasingly busy but unfortunately more sedentary, it is no wonder that around 62% of Australian adults are overweight. However, while Australians are spending their money on weight loss, unfortunately, a lot of their money is wasted on ‘quick-fix’, unethical weight loss methods.”
Sue continues, “At The Natural Way, we encourage healthy weight control by offering our client’s sensible, family-friendly programmes that can help you to lose weight steadily and sensibly. Losing weight is the start, but learning healthy eating and better lifestyle choices are just as important, so we teach each client how easy it is to maintain their ideal weight for life through our Healthy Living programme.
