Obesity has reached global epidemic proportions. Latest figures reveal that at least one billion adults are significantly overweight and 2.6 million people die each year as a direct result of obesity and complications caused by obesity. Alongside the US, the UK has the highest obesity levels in the world. Researchers predict that if the current trend continues, up to 48% of men and 43% of women in the UK could be obese by 2030, adding an additional Â£1.9-2 billion per year in medical costs for obesity-related diseases. Last month nearly every doctor in the UK united in an unprecedented campaign to tackle rising levels of obesity.
