We’re fatter, we don’t eat our greens and we don’t exercise enough.
These are just a few of the key findings in the National Health Survey, released by the Bureau of Statistics.
In Australia, 63.4% of adults are overweight or obese, a dramatic jump from 56.3% in 1995.
Men are more likely to be overweight or obese (70%) than women (56%), however what’s more concerning is that 66.6% of women and 60.3% of men have a higher waist circumference or “grabbable gut”, a sure sign of too much “toxic fat” around the vital organs, which can lead to heart disease, type 2 diabetes and several cancers.
We’re in for a bleaker future unless we all commit to changing our unhealthy ways and making simple changes.
It’s not too late!
Crab Fest is a great excuse to LiveLighter, give these tips a go:
- Travel to Crab Fest using active transport! Walk, cycle or run to this year’s Channel 7 Mandurah Crab Fest presented by LiveLighter. Take advantage of free bike parking at either Reading Cinema, or behind the Music Stage! Being active and sitting less is an important part of maintaining a healthy weight.
- Choose healthy food options. We have made it easy for you to pick healthy options at Crab Fest. Each food stall will have healthier options highlighted by a green sticker on the menu boards.
- Stay hydrated with the LiveLighter Hydration Station. Swap sugary drinks for water! It’s free, quenches your thirst and has no kilojoules. Collect your free LiveLighter water bottle on Sunday 19th March so you can take your own water everywhere you go!
- Wheel for your Meal. Visit the cycle powered kitchen in the LiveLighter lounge and move for your food!
- Walk the entire length of the event and back. Did you know if you walk around Crab Fest, you will have walked over 3kms (or 4000* steps)!
- Take part in the LiveLighter activities happening throughout the event weekend!
*Estimate only depends on walking style
