Australia, a nation of fitness-lovers or is it quite the opposite?

Recently an article was published by Sue Dunlevy for goldcoast.com.au which detailed the growing ‘fat’ problem throughout Australia.  To many, Australia appears to be a nation of health, a nation of fitness-lovers and those who love the great outdoors, however, whilst this is how the country is portrayed in the media to those overseas, it seems a shocking number of Australians fall into the ‘obese’ category, many of whom, reside outside of the major cities.  According to the research carried out by Roy Morgan (20,000 subjects), 4 in every 5 people in some towns are considered to be overweight, with the nation’s fattest living in the South Australian towns of Mount Gambier, Bordertown and Naracoorte.
Unfortunately enjoying your unhealthy food a little too much, and combining this with little or no exercise can result not only in obesity, but also other health problems further down the line.
