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.
