Recent statistics from the World Health Organisation said that Ireland is on course to become the most obese country in Europe by 2030. The biggest jump in obesity levels is expected to be in women rising from 23% to 57%.
In 2016 Operation Transformation is launching Ireland’s Million Pound Challenge, which challenges the nation to come together and be 1 million pounds lighter by January 2017.
Whether you are a group or an individual you can get involved by registering on the Operation Transformation website. Enter your weight loss to contribute towards the national target and help the nation in becoming 1 million pounds lighter.
Your local Sam McCauley healthcare team will be recording details from their weigh-ins on a specific programme designed for the campaign and the results sent to Operation Transformation so that this can be counted as part of Ireland’s Million Pound Challenge. All weigh-ins will be recorded in confidence.
Our Pharmacists and staff will also be able to help and advise you with regard to any weight or dietary concerns you may have and many of our stores are participating in this exciting challenge.
Listen out on 2fm and watch Operation Transformation on RTE 1 to see how the nation is progressing and what changes you can make.
