Six out of ten people say they’re clear on what to do to improve their health, but admit they’re guilty of bad habits.

422 million people globally now have diabetes, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO). In addition, new food labelling suggestions specifying exercise times, are further proof of ignorance around what we should be doing to maintain good health.

Dr. Sally Norton, weight loss surgeon and Kinetik Wellbeing ambassador commented, “In my experience, it’s not that surprising that six out of ten people think they’re clear on how to stay healthy. In actual fact, all the recent studies prove that we are becoming increasingly unhealthy as a nation.
