Dr Gary Leong is a pediatric endocrinologist who specialises in the treatment of children suffering with obesity and diabetes and its complications. A humane and very real person - not just a medical doctor and PhD - Gary loves working with kids and their families to help them work towards and enjoy healthier, happier lives.

This book outlines a potentially life-changing program that Dr Gary Leong has developed called the 2020 Family Health Challenge. 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 a sustainable, manageable change for a better, healthier, active and more purposeful life. This book attempts to solve the problem of what you can do as a parent when you think you have run out of options for a child suffering from obesity.

Join the 2020 Family Health Challenge now and learn to Play, Exercise and Eat more together as a family.

Review quote

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.
