A graphic was posted recently on the DailyMail showing the average body mass index values for adults around the globe.
Kuwait is officially now the fattest country in the world, followed by the United States of America, Trinidad and Tobago, Argentina and Mexico.
I sorted out the top 10 Arab countries from the lists to see where Lebanon stands and we turned out in 8th spot, which isn’t that bad.
Fattest Arab Countries sorted by Average BMI
1- Kuwait 29.5
2- Egypt 28.4
3- UAE 28.0
4- Bahrain 27.4
5- Saudi Arabia 27.3
6- Jordan 27.2
7- Qatar 26.8
8- Lebanon 26.0
9- Syria 25.8
10- Iraq 25.0
PS: Adults who have an average body weight of between 18.5 and 24.9 are generally considered to have the ideal body weight for their height.
man… you really need a hobby
we have or had one of the most healthy & natural cuisine in the world but sadly for the moment most people don’t know how to coke and spend their time eating in restaurants and smoking shisha, not to mention the lazy life style that is adopted by most of our society.
we should have a better rank
anyway all my Europeans friends says that “Lebanese eat too much”!
Calculating BMI alone is not an accurate measure for fat hence this study is flawed.
Actually if you follow the BMI index…Most of the people in the world would be anorexic! That index is totally screwed up.
