Obesity in Australia

Australian adultsIn 2007, the World Health Organization (WHO) found that 67.4% of Australian adults are overweight, ranking 21st in the world, and third out of the major countries in the Anglosphere, behind the United States (ranked 9th) and New Zealand (ranked 17th). A 2011 WHO study found that just over 30% of Australian adults are obese, which is expected to rise to roughly 43% in 2013 if current trends continue.

Australian childrenThe percentage of overweight and obese children in Australia, despite rapid increases in the 1980s and the first half of the 1990s, have remained mostly steady for the past 10 years, with 23 to 25% of Australians under the age of 18 classified as overweight, and 5 to 6% of the same demographic classified as obese.

Obesity

This is all the fat in 1 donut how amazing is that!

Quick reality checkIts horrible to think Australia is the second fatest country in the word just behind America. We're starting to get larger girths and become couch potatoes.

my very own video on how I became obese then worked it off again.It shows how that anyone can lose weight and we should become a healthier country.
