Why are Kuwaitis so incredibly fat?

And I'm surprised Egypt rates so highly, Egyptians I meet here never seem particularly overweight, nor do people look particularly fat (skinnier than average if anything) in Cairo.

I am surprised Bahrain isn't on there because I am sure I remember high obesity statistics from there.

Anyway I'm off to book my next bikini holiday to the South Pacific ;)

i cant believe uae is actually on the list, dats a suprise to me, n true about egyptian i rarely see them overweight. This country should really take this thing serious. I mean it maybe true its on the list cuz there's nothing to do here. Whereever u go u have to take a cab or have a car. The only places to go is malls,beach..i mean sometime u get fed up.. its the same places. i think they should engourage parents that there children should have exercise n should be strict about the fast food cuz there so many children who are overweight and its so sad a small kid dieing of heart attack.. before there was no such thing.

This statistic has to refer to nationals only, because almost none of the 2 or 3 million subcon laborers are taxing their belts.

C'mon, Emiratis: you can be number one! Buffets for all, everyday!!!
