We are the 5th fattest country on earth!

Yup, the UAE has been ranked as the fifth fattest nation in the world!

The BMC Public Health journal thinks that by the end of 2015 there will be 2.3 million over weight and 700 obese people in the Emirates.

More than 66% of men and 60% of women including children are either overweight or obese in the country.

It has been blamed on the unhealthy lifestyle we live here because of extreme weather conditions, over eating and lack of physical activity!

The same report thinks that an average adult here consumes over 3000 calories per day!! That is 20% more than we should!
