DIY Health Intervention

1. DIY Weight Challenge (2 lunchtime talks)
Participants take the initiative to learn how to manage weight by attending the first talk entitled ‘Lose Weight, Not Life’ and attempt to apply what they have learnt and aim to lose at least ½-1 kg weight. A second talk is scheduled 3 weeks later to provide a follow up and give further tips about weight management.

2. DIY Cholesterol Lowering Challenge (2 lunch time talks, 1 review session and one blood test on site)
This is useful for participants of a company who had a recent health screening and know that their blood cholesterol levels are high and wish to lower it. They attend the first talk entitled ‘Look After Your Heart: A Nutrition Talk on Cholesterol’ that gives them information on how to reduce their blood cholesterol levels and improve blood lipids. A full lipid blood test (prepaid) is to be taken on site in 4 months time as a form of commitment to this challenge. The second nutrition talk will be held on site 1 month later to provide further information and a review of participants’ efforts to adjust their lifestyle and food. At the 4 month mark, a blood test will be taken onsite 2 weeks before the final session to explain and give out blood lipids results.
