Kuwait on top in wrold Fattest Countries In The World In 2016

#1 – Kuwait – 42.8%

Kuwait has become king of the fattest countries in the world in recent years. It is commonly said that their love for fast food has lead to the alarmingly high rates of obesity. 13% of the people in the entire world are said to be obese. Over three times this percentage are obese in Kuwait. The definition of overweight is a BMI of 25 or more, and the definition of obese is a DMI of 30 or more.

#2 – Saudi Arabia – 35.2%

Another country that has seen a shocking rise when it comes to its status among the fattest countries in the world is Saudi Arabia. Less than a decade ago, a study put together by Forbes found that Saudi Arabia barely cracked the top thirty fattest countries.

#3 – Belize – 34.9%

It’s always worrying to see a country quickly climb a list of the fattest countries like this. While the obesity problem in countries like Egypt has been pretty widely talked about and documented for at least a few decades, Belize was not thought of as a nation with an obesity problem until recently.

#4 – Egypt – 34.6%

Like many countries on this list of the fattest countries in the world, the problems in Egypt have been caused at least partially by rapid industrialization. In Egypt, the percentage of fat people in the cities is twice as big as the percentage of fat people in more rural areas.

#5 – Jordan – 34.3%

Jordan has similarities with UAE when it comes to its obesity problem. For one, obesity is far more common in women than in men. The difference is especially stark in Jordan, with almost twice as many woman that are obese as men.

#6 – United Arab Emirates – 33.7%

United Arab Emirates shares many of its causes and effects of obesity with Dubai. Oil wealth came to the country too quickly and with it came a western-style diet of fast food that the population wasn’t used to. In the US, obesity rates are way higher in men than women.

#7 – South Africa – 33.5%

South Africa is the first of a few African nations that appear on this list. Many African countries struggle with high instances of poverty and undernourishment, caused by an inadequate food supply, inequality, and bad food distribution systems.

#8 – Qatar – 33.1%

When a country is able to quickly become rich from its natural resources, there are two ways it can impact public health. One is that the health of the country can improve, as food becomes more available and of higher quality, along with better sanitation and safety standards. Unfortunately, in Qatar, the great upswing in the wealth of the country came with a downturn in the health of the country.

#9 – Mexico – 32.8%

Coming in at ninth on this list of the fattest countries in the world is Mexico, with a rate of obesity at just under a third of the population. Like in the United States, the percentage of overweight and obese people in the country is considered to be a serious issue of national health.

#10 – United States – 31.8%

The US has a reputation across the world for being one of the fattest countries. It is perceived by many countries as being a decadent country. Documentaries like “Supersize Me” have outlined the country’s seeming addiction to junk food and disregard for basic ideas with regards to healthy eating and living.
