OBESITY is to be the subject of a third block of education sessions run by a community dietician at Ipswich Hospital.

The four hour-long sessions on Tuesday nights from 7.30pm to 8.30pm start on September 3.

They will focus on why the nation is becoming overweight, reading food labels to find hidden fat and sugar, setting targets and rewards.

Dietician Angela Street said: "No-one will be expected to lose weight during the four-week course, but hopefully people will go away with the confidence to set about making changes to their diet and lifestyle which will help them gain long-term control of their weight."
