AUSTRALIA’S MOST UNHEALTHY OCCUPATION GETS A HEALTH KICK

Lite n' Easy 2 mins read

A new pilot program aimed at improving the health and well-being of what has been dubbed Australia’s most unhealthy occupation, has revealed its first round of successful results. Metricon Homes has partnered with Australia’s leading healthy meal delivery company, Lite n’ Easy to provide tradies with a range of meals and snacks as part of a four week healthy eating initiative. 

Accredited Practising Dietitian for Lite n’ Easy Ashleigh Jones says, “We know that an unhealthy fast food for lunch supported by morning and afternoon tea each day can have a negative impact on our general health and well- being. It can cause weight gain that leads to disease, as well as brain fog and de-motivation. Eating fast food or unhealthy snacks on the go is also a contributing factor when it comes to fatigue and concentration on a work site.”

“We hope this joint initiative with Metricon Homes demonstrates that eating healthy meals and snacks can have a life changing, positive effect on both the mind and body,” added Ashleigh. 

Metricon Homes Tradie Ivor Godsell lost almost 8 kilograms over the four week trial and says he has never felt better. “Early starts and such physical activity can make it hard to look after the body. By changing what I was eating and the time of day I sat down for meals, I noticed considerable weight loss. I also experienced improved sleep and saw a significant change in my concentration, which is so important, especially when using tools. I actually couldn’t believe how good I felt.”

All of the construction team in the trial reported at least one area of improvement whether it was weight loss, sleep quality, concentration or fatigue levels. Metricon's General Manager - Building Operation Victoria, Peter Temopoulos says, “We are heavily invested in the health and well-being of our team, and we know now more than ever, how much pressure is on all Australians in general especially when it comes to the costs of living and eating healthy. We need to look after the sector as much as possible to ensure they are fighting fit. This four-week trial has shown incredible initial results.”
