The contents are: concepts, benefits, types, obstacles, time management, activity monitoring, social support, obesity, stress, health risks, diseases, good practices, relapses, opportunities, motivation and healthier lifestyle maintenance. Each section includes front page, title, welcoming, summary of the previous section, review of the task, content and activities, tips, summary of the current section and goal setting.
