Understanding how to eat healthily is particularly important in the UK . Obesity is a growing epidemic. According to Nationmaster statistics, the UK has the 3rd highest obesity rate in the world. Studies by the NHS show that in 2006, 24% of adults (age 16+) were classified as obese, this is an increase from 15% in 1993.
Increasingly, British citizens are looking to other cultures around the world for an answer to this growing problem, for a way to change their diet and their lifestyles in the hope of living a healthier existence.
As the country with the 3rd highest obesity rate in the world, we have a lot to learn from other cultures who may arguably have a more natural, healthier diet.
