Currently 1 in 4 adults in the UK and 1 in every 5 children are obese and these numbers are rising. We are the second most obese country in Europe and if things continue as they are by 2030 we are looking at 64% of women being obese and 74% of men. This is a huge issue that desperately needs to be tackled but despite being aware of the health implications associated with obesity the problem appears to be getting worse.
