As a nation, we're the heaviest we've ever been.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics estimates that roughly one in four Australian adults are obese bringing heart disease, type 2 diabetes and cancer closer - along with a range of other health problems.

LiveLighter is a program developed in Western Australia which aims to encourage Australian adults to lead healthier lifestyles - to make changes to what they eat and drink, and to be more active.

We want to help people understand why they need to take action and what simple changes they can make in order to 'LiveLighter'.
