Here`s why Britain already hit ‘peak obesity’

London: Britain has actually already reached peak obesity, according to Goldman Sachs analysis.

In its 100th edition of its Fortnightly Thoughts report, the company brought out a chart that shows those going to hospital in Britain that are related to obesity are dropping off, the Independent reported.

And Goldman Sachs pointed out the reason for this could be closely correlated to the fact Britain is consuming less calories than it used to.

The World Health Organization said that by 2030, a third of women will become obese, compared to 26 percent in 2010. By the same year, 75 percent of UK men will be classified obese while 36 percent of men are forecasted to be obese.

However, if Britain continued to drop its average calorie consumption, this could help dramatically.

Men, on average, are recommended to take 2,500 per day while women are recommended to take in no more than 2,000 to maintain a healthy weight. One gains weight when calories are ingested more than one expends and vice versa. (ANI)
