Did you know that 25% of Filipinos are overweight and about 6% are obese? This is according to the survey done by Food and Nutrition research Institute (FNRI) in 2011 and is expected to increase by 2015.
This is why Roche and Xenical have partnered with the Philippine Association for the Study of Overweight and Obesity (PASOO) to launch a campaign to help you rock your body to a better you. The campaign, dubbed “Rock The Fat Away”, addresses the serious problems of overweight and obesity, including safe and unsafe methods of weight loss. This edgy campaign reminds us that the key to achieving and maintaining a healthy weight isn’t about short-term dietary changes. It’s about a lifestyle that includes a healthy diet, regular physical activity, and taking care of all aspects of our well-being.
