WHY DUBBO – AND AUSTRALIA – IS GAINING WEIGHT
For many Australians, fast-food is an easy, if unhealthy, option and is playing a more prevalent part in our diets. Instead of being occasional, fast food meals are becoming commonplace. Stress also plays a very big part in weight gain. Many people fall into bad habits and comfort eat or drink when times are hardest so it’s no surprise that farming areas suffering through drought have some of the most dramatic statistics in the country, including Dubbo.
‘Weight creeps on when life gets hard,’ Gen Davidson, co-founder of SuperFastDiet confirms. ‘I know myself that losing a loved one then going through professional stress made me turn towards food and drink for comfort, but it wasn’t very comforting carrying around 35 kilograms of excess weight. It was also causing havoc with my health.’
IT’S A BIG ISSUE, LITERALLY
Obesity is, in fact, a bigger killer in Australia than heart disease and sits at the #1 spot for cause of illness or death. So why is it that, given such dire warnings, so many people remain overweight and find it hard to lose weight, especially in country towns?
‘Many people try diets that are too hard or try to flog themselves with exercise regimes they can’t maintain,’ Gen reports. ‘Doing this in isolation only makes it harder. The real answer is to focus on a diet that fits in easily with your lifestyle plus getting more active in general. I lost 35 kilograms ‘part-time dieting’ which is what SuperFastDiet essentially promotes. If it’s easier than other diets and you enjoy it you’ll keep it up – especially in a big group challenge.’
HOW TO JOIN IN AND DROP KILOS WITH DUBBO – FOR GOOD
Mayor Ben Shields is on the band-wagon and Dubbo residents have been flocking to register for the 8 week challenge which starts September 1st. Dubbo is also inspiring the nation with many Australians also taking up part-time dieting for spring at SuperFastDiet and getting more active.
‘My co-founder Victoria Black and I understand weight gain and weight loss, having dropped 45kg between us. We also understand that full-time dieting seems too hard for so many jaded people out there which is why we are doing this for Dubbo and Australians at large,’ Gen says. ‘It doesn’t have to be super hard, you just need to start, have times when you let your hair down too, but stick at it long term. That’s the secret – tweaks and habits,’ she recommends, ‘diet part-time for a better life.’
