National Obesity Awareness Week is organised by the National Obesity Forum. As part of the week, people are encouraged to sign up to a 'National New Year’s Resolution' where they pledge to make one sustainable change to help improve their health – whether that is eating more healthily or being more physically active. 

Obesity and the NHS

Obesity represents the greatest threat to health worldwide with poor diet contributing to more disease than physical inactivity, smoking and alcohol combined. Of the 1.2 million staff in the NHS, it is likely that around 300,000 would be classified as obese and a further 400,000 as overweight.
