UK Government moves on obesity

Interesting news from the UK this morning concerning measures to tackle obesity, following last week’s report that obese people are at much higher risk of death if they contract Covid-19. As someone who only in the past ten years has got their body weight consistently under control at a sensible level, I am encouraged by any initiative at a Government level, which might start to address this problem.

I decided to try the BBC’s online tool to compare my weight with others, and was relieved to find I’m “normal” but horrified to see that almost 80% of people my age are either overweight or obese.
