Childhood obesity is not just about weight!

With about 25% of children in Australia being considered overweight or obese, your family is not alone. If you notice that:

  • Your children are fighting boredom, bullies or broken hearts
  • Mealtimes involve arguments over food
  • Family fun times have become few and far between
  • Frustration and unhappiness has overshadowed you and your family's lives

The problems you face may lay deeper. Solving these issues isn’t always just about eating better and moving more. This is where ‘Ride For Life’ can help fill in the gaps.

Who is Dr Gary Leong?

I am a paediatrician (a children’s doctor), and a paediatric endocrinologist (a doctor qualified to diagnose and treat disorders of the endocrine glands and hormones in children). Through my clinical practice I have treated hundreds of children and families at public and private clinics in Sydney and Brisbane, including at the KOALA clinic and the Kids Fit 4 Future Clinic.

While I was trained to diagnose and treat children medically, after years of practice I felt this approach was only working to a point. I felt compelled to bring a more integrated approach to treatment. I found the emotional, mental and socio-cultural aspects of the disease must be considered equally too.

My Book outlines a potentially life-changing program that I have developed called the Ride to Life program. It encourages you to courageously and honestly confront the underlying reasons for the obesity affecting your child. But it is also about parents and children taking appropriate levels of personal responsibility and then taking action to make sustainable, manageable change for a better, healthier, active and more purposeful life.

Achieving a healthy weight in our modern world is hard for us all - monumentally so. In this inspiring, heartfelt and deeply practical book, Dr Gary Leong embraces the complexity of the obesity challenge and shows how to harness the power of families to transform their lives and communities by approaching the challenge “just one thing at a time”. This has to be the way of the future. We must learn new habits, follow Gary’s KINIMS (yes, he makes up words too), and “ride together” to break the cycle of obesity.

Dr Gary's Ride for life- is an easy to follow guide for families or family members struggling with obesity, we were able to practically apply the information to our family before we donated 'Ride for life' to my child school library for other families and staff to gain this easy to follow advice.
