Swap It, Don't Stop It!

The Australian Government has launched the ‘Swap It, Don’t Stop It’ campaign – a call to action to all Australians to make healthier lifestyle choices to reduce their risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers.

‘Swap It, Don’t Stop It’ features Eric, an animated blue balloon character, likeable but overweight. On television, in print and on the radio, Eric will urge Australians to make some simple lifestyle changes to become healthier – for instance swap big for small (portion control); swap often for sometimes (occasional treats); swap fried for fresh (nutritional quality); swap sitting for moving (physical activity); and swap watching for playing (physical activity).

Plenty of Swap It resources have been developed to help people learn how to become a 'swapper'. These resources are available from the Swap It, Don't Stop It website and include:

An app for your iphone that allows you to choose from a range of food and physical activity swaps. You can track your progress, use an ingredient planner, create your own shopping list and find activities nearby.
12-week planner to help you plan and monitor your eating and physical activity.
The Swap It, Don't Stop It campaign and the swapper resources will help you lose your belly without having to lose out on the things you love, so start swapping today!

All the best in Health and Fitness
