If you are local and have been searching for an effective weight loss program in Australia (Victoria), the Life! program is accessible to help you out.  Even better news… the Life! program is FREE, practical and proven to work!

What is Life! Program?

I would like to share with you about the flyer I received in my letter-box about Life!, a program funded by the Victorian government and managed by Diabetes Victoria.  This program aims to help people living in Victoria change their habits so as to live a healthier life, helping to prevent diabetes, heart disease and stroke.

Why is lifestyle modification important?

Heart disease and stroke are currently the two biggest killers in Australia and over 70 new cases of diabetes are being diagnosed daily.  All three conditions can have serious complications that impact the quality of life.

The good news is that you can significantly lower your risk by making some healthy changes to your lifestyle such as being active, choosing healthier food options and being a healthy weight.
