Healthy Heart Network ONLINE Weight Loss Course
My Name is Doctor Warrick Bishop and my course represents a lot of my own personal journey and observation in helping people over the last 15 years or thereabouts with weight and weight control.
We know it's a huge problem and turns up everywhere. It makes the front page of magazines. It's in social media and articles come up regularly on the news. So we know obesity is really a crisis. It is linked to type two diabetes. It is linked to cardiovascular disease. It is closely linked to high blood pressure, and clearly, it's a growing problem.
The stats are astounding. These are relatively old, but of over the 7 million Australians with type two diabetes, 60% were overweight and 20% were obese. And when it comes to the proportion of women, aged 25 to 64, the proportion of overweight women from back in the '80s into the '90s and 2000s has nearly doubled from 27% to 45%.
And we know as well that the rates of obesity in children are increasing. And that really only indicates concerns for that generation as they progress. Well, what goes on? Well, the increased fat mass is all about driving insulin resistance, and that insulin resistance has a complex interplay with the sympathetic nervous system.
And that drives blood pressure and that drives fatty acids and all sorts of bits and pieces, but the long and the short of it is, we end up with increased fat mass driving hypertension through a whole cascade of disastrous consequences from their increased mass effect. And that increase in insulin in the body.
Why is being overweight a problem? It increases your risk of diabetes, but I'm sure you know that. It increases your risk of heart attack, but I reckon you know that too, it increases the likelihood of osteoarthritis, particularly affecting you hips and knees. But really importantly, one of the things that we have started to recognize is it can increase your risk of dementia.
I'm all about people living as well as possible for as long as possible. I've put together a course to help people lose weight. It's full of resources and educational material. So you don't have to do it forever. Just get that information and set your own goals, understanding the process. I've included downloadable resources, but also some hints and tips together with some bloods so that we can track your progress.
