DST officially launched their healthy lifestyle programme at their headquarters at Tungku Link yesterday.

The programme is conducted in collaboration with the Health Promotion Centre (HPC) and Fitness Zone.

Approximately 21 employees from DST joined in the weight management programme which will be held for a duration of 10 weeks assisted by professional stakeholders such as doctors, dieticians, sports scientists, psychologists and physical activity sessions.

Hj Suhaimi Hj Hussain, chief executive officer of DST advised the participants to think of being unhealthy as a good motivational tool and deciding factor for staying in the programme.

He added that success of the organisation is dependent on employees’ positive well-being.

Participants were led through the various exercise routines, weekly dietary challenges, healthy cooking demos and group counselling which they would encounter during the programme.

Physical activities will be conducted by Fitness Zone instructors at HPC and DST sports hall in order to increase the participants’ energy, as well as reduce their risk of stress or depression.

Meanwhile, group counselling will also be held every Wednesday coupled with blood tests and other examinations.

A food and exercise diary was also handed to every participant in order for them to record what has been eaten and exercises they have done throughout the week.

The objective of the programme for the participants is to lose weight and maintain a healthy weight. Participants will be expected to practice a healthy lifestyle such as eating a healthy diet, engage in regular physical activities and learn how to manage stress.

The participants are expected to lose around 10 per cent of their body weight at the end of the programme.
