obesity in india


According to a study from the journal Obesity published in the April 2009 issue of Diabetes Care, obesity is on the rise in India. The study was a follow up to a previous study conducted in 2003 which had found a higher prevalence of obesity in Indians than in the western world.

India is well known for its extreme diet and for its high rates of obesity. According to a paper “Diet, physical activity and obesity in India” published in the November 2008 issue of the International Journal of Obesity, the obesity rate in India is a whopping 29%. That’s a much higher rate than the US, which has a 16% obesity rate.

the paper by the researchers, which was called, “Diet, physical activity and obesity in India,” found that while there might be a genetic component, people were more obese in their twenties and thirties and their average BMI was around 28 (the normal range for Asians is 25-30, for whites it is 20-25). They also found that both diet and physical activity were linked to weight gain.

If you can believe it, this study was conducted in India. India has been on an obesity fast since 1991 when it was first thought to have gone to bed as a nation of fat people. Then in 2011, the Indian government started encouraging people to exercise more, and so the obesity rate fell dramatically. Now, in 2012, this was still a problem.

Obesity is definitely a problem in India. The government has been on the wrong track in this regard. In the last five years, the government has increased the minimum wage, made the food available to schoolchildren more nutritious, and provided free weightloss and gym sessions to people living below the poverty line. The problem is that people are still not exercising enough to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. This is why the government has to do something about it.

Obesity is a huge problem in India. For the last 25 years, there has been a continuous increase in India’s consumption of fast food. Because of that, almost half of India’s population are overweight, and this problem is getting worse. There are also many studies that show that obesity is linked to a higher risk of stroke, heart attack, diabetes, and even death. Although India’s economy is growing, over the last couple of decades, the country has lost one-third of its workforce.

The problem with fast food is that it’s a cheap way to fill the stomach. As I mentioned before, the most affordable fast food options can be found in India. You can get a meal for half the price of a good Indian restaurant. Which can lead to unhealthy eating habits in India, and an unhealthy lifestyle overall.

According to a recent study by the National Centre for Disease Control, the majority of Indian adults are overweight. Also, more than 50 percent of Indian adults are obese. All of these statistics are staggering when you consider that the number of Indians that are obese is around 60 percent. With that being said, what you can’t say is that India is doing a good job of reducing obesity. In fact, the number of Indians that are obese far surpasses that of the number of Indians that are overweight.

According to the National Centre for Disease Control, the number of Indians who are obese is around 60 percent. The number of Indian overweight is around 40 percent. That’s not too bad. India has a population of 1.35 billion. Considering we are only one-fifth of that, it’s not that bad.

But unfortunately, that doesn’t mean that India has done a great job of reducing it. In fact, the percentage of Indian people that are obese is increasing. The reason behind it is that the economy of India is growing at a much faster rate than that of other countries. That means more people are spending more money on food than they are eating, which leads to increasing numbers of people that are obese.
