Wits Centre to Tackle Obesity

The University of the Witwatersrand’s Developmental Pathways for Health Unit launches Action: the Africa Centre for Obesity Prevention

Professor Shane Norris from the University of the Witwatersrand’s Developmental Pathways for Health Unit has launched Action: the Africa Centre for Obesity Prevention.
The centre, which will provide information and research on the growing obesity epidemic across Africa, aims to communicate to the public how to lose weight‚ stay healthy and combat the confusion that reigns around what to eat and what not to eat.

Norris explained that it was tricky to shed kilos and keep them off because the body is programmed to keep weight on or return to the person’s higher weight.
