As Australians we aren't so far behind the US. We are the third most obese country in the world. I think it has something to do with most Australians being quite lazy. Also we have a lot of good foods in our country so more people tend to eat out even though it gets really expensive.
The 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 24% of Australians under the age of 18 classified as overweight, and 5 to 6% of the same demographic classified as obese.
In a study published in 2015 by the US journal of Economics and Human Biology, obesity is found to have the largest impact on men aged over 75, and women aged between 60-74.
We as a country need to make a change.
