The stigma and shame surrounding being overweight or obese can represent a significant barrier to change for individuals. Additionally, marginalised groups including those living within the lowest socioeconomic areas face greater levels of obesity and associated health risks.
The management of obesity is best assisted with education and the involvement of allied health professionals to promote lifestyle changes around physical activity and healthy eating habits. Australia has several charities committed to providing stigma-free resources and care, including HAES Australia and The Obesity Collective.
