Obesity Hits Europe: Fat Problem

Even though the statistics about overweight Americans are true (around a whopping 68 percent), a recent study examined what the average European looks like and it’s not what you might expect.

The study revealed that more than half of most adults in Europe believe that they are overweight. The report which was recently issued introduces a new idea that Americans previously thought differently. Over the last twenty years or so, the obesity statistics have been rising in countries all over Europe.

It seems as though American is not the only one with a problem when it comes to overweight adults, as many people in Europe have admitted that they are at least overweight.

Being “Overweight” is considered having a Body Mass Index of around 25 to 29.9. Someone who has a BMI of 30 is considered to be obese. It seems as though more and more people across Europe have been gaining weight and the problem is on the rise.

Health officials say that the trend has been developing rather steadily, despite what Americans have thought about Europeans for years, which is that they are all thin and great-looking. The fact is that many European countries have had to deal with their own fair share of health problems over the years, including obesity.
