IF you've put getting healthy on the backburner, now is the perfect time to start as it's Healthy Weight Week.
The Dietitians Association of Australia has urged 18-25 year old women in particular to kick-start healthy eating habits.
"We want to raise awareness of weight issues in younger women, and help them get to a healthy weight sensibly - instead of trying to lose 20 or 30 kilos when they reach 50, which is far more difficult," said Dietitians Association of Australia spokeswoman Clare Collins.
