  1. Does being fat mean being fit? More people in the Middle East are becoming fat and fatter due to eating more ‘junk’ food and such; with that comes all the ailments associated with obesity: high blood pressure, diabetes, heart dicease etc.

  2. The UK is 26th and this has sparked heated debate in the office regarding whether BMI is a valid measure and whether countries e.g. Tonga where people are traditionally larger are more unfit than countries where populations are traditionally thinner but who then become fat (iyswim) – it’s a slow afternoon over here in ITServices ;o)

  3. Jimbo – you must be from the US where I’ve heard of UK ex-pats being stopped by the police because they were walking and therefore looked suspicious. Fish and chips are now an expensive meal and although Yorkshire Puddings are absolutely scrummy, our most popular meal apparently is something like chicken korma.
