Abstract

us to focus on promotion of health and prevention of
disease. Simple public health messaging is required to
inform and motivate the public to follow evidence-based
interventions which can help prevent metabolic illnesses
and their complications. We present a catchy 6E framework
which enjoins individuals to Eat well, Exercise well,
Eliminate unhealthy behaviours/habits, Ensure adequate
Entertainment, relaxation and sleep, practice Emotional
control, and Eschew/avoid extremes. This message can be
used at individual, family as well as public health levels, to
spread awareness about healthy behaviours and lifestyle.
Keywords: Diabetes, metabolic syndrome, obesity,
prediabetes, prevention, primary care, primary
