Article Type: Food facts From: Nutrition

The largest ever UK study into obesity, backed by government and compiled by 250 experts, has shown that excess weight is now the norm in our "obesogenic" society and that dramatic and comprehensive action is required to stop the majority of us becoming obese by 2050. With the issue of obesity in the UK firmly at the forefront of national headlines, leading UK scales company Salter has developed convenient daily tools and long-term solutions to help combat obesity. Salter's innovative scales offer a variety of ways to manage your intake through portion control and nutritional analysis, and your body composition by helping you understand what you are made of. The wide range of Salter scales offers easy-to-use and affordable scales for everyone regardless of lifestyle, income or fitness levels. Understanding your body composition is the first step on the road to a healthier life, and weight is only part of the story Salter body analysers (from around £65) such as the Health Station Plus and the Glass Body Analyser Scale, look at the composition of up to five elements, including body mass index, basal metabolic rate, body water, muscle mass and bone mass. Stylish too, the body analysers give people the confidence to tackle their health concerns in a variety of ways.
