A recent survey said that South Africans are the third fattest nation in the world. Why are we so fat? DietDoc comments.
After a week of being bombarded with newspaper headlines and TV news reports on the latest national health survey undertaken by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) that pronounce South Africans as "the third fattest nation in the world", most of us are probably in a state of shock. If, as the study reports, most South Africans, even those who suffer from overweight and/or obesity, are in denial and regard themselves as "healthy", then these revelations must at least make us think about weight issues.
