Don’t become part of this worrying statistic!

BBC World News:

Global population of obese and overweight tops 2.1bn

The number of people in the world who are obese or overweight has topped 2.1 billion, up from 875 million in 1980, the latest figures published in the Lancet show.

And not one country is succeeding in treating it, said the research.

US, China and Russia had the highest rates and the UK was third in Western Europe, the 188-country study said.

Experts said the rise was due to the “modernisation of our world”, causing “physical inactivity on all levels”.

Gender split

Researchers across the world were led by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) in Washington, in a study they said is the most comprehensive to date.

Scientists analysed data from surveys, such as from the World Health Organization, government websites, and reviewed “all articles” about the numbers of obese or overweight people in the world.

The study said rates of obesity were rising across the world, although the rates in developed countries remain the highest.

More than half of the world’s 671 million obese people live in 10 countries, ranked in order:

  • US
  • China
  • India
  • Russia
  • Brazil
  • Mexico
  • Egypt
  • Germany
  • Pakistan
  • Indonesia

The UK has the third highest rates in Western Europe, with 67% of men and 57% of women overweight or obese, it said.

The study called for “urgent global leadership” to combat risk factors such as excessive calorie intake, inactivity, and “active promotion of food consumption by industry”.

Prof Ali Mokdad, of the IHME, said no country was beating obesity as it was a relatively new problem.

Prof Hermann Toplak, at the University of Graz, in Austria, said: “Over the past decades the modernisation of our world, with all the technology around us, has led to physical inactivity on all levels.”

Inactivity caused self-control to spiral, he said.

Children and adults were not building up enough functioning muscle mass, and “classical eating” had been replaced by “uncontrolled food intake” spread over the day. he said.

How not to fail your New Year’s resolutions!

It may seem a little early in the month to be talking about failing New Year’s resolutions, but in my experience- prevention is better than cure!

Here are some tips on how to keep to your resolutions- follow these and make 2014 a successful year!

1. Make the resolutions REALISTIC! Don’t aim to run a Marathon in Spring if you haven’t started jogging yet… make the resolutions achievable to avoid dissapointment. Put together a plan and stick to it.


2. FUN should be the key to your resolutions…don’t go for boring goals- the more exciting the better! Aim for something that will inspire you and keep you excited for the rest of the year. It doesn’t always have to be diet or booze related!

3. Try something NEW! Try a new sport, a new class or learn a new skill. Don’t be afraid to do what you’ve been putting off for ages! Why not try our Brighton Kettlebell classes for FREE? Click here for more info: TRY FOR FREE.


4.  WRITE down your resolutions and put this in a prominent place for you to see. If its diet related keep it in the kitchen, if its fitness related put it somewhere near your sports kit. And NO…this doesn’t include the Wii-Fit!

5. Tell OTHERS about your intentions. The more people you tell the more support you’ll have and the more likely you are to stick to your goals.

6. TEAM UP with others with similar goals or aspirations. Join a team or a group class which will keep you motivated and inspired when things are getting hard. The New Year New You Guranteed Results programme starts on the 11th January and is a great way to kick- start your 2014!
See: New Year- New You.

     7. Enlist a Personal trainer or coach. These professionals will help you set realistic and  measurable goals- and give you the motivation to keep going! Ensure the Personal trainer is certified and insured! Christian Vila Personal Training will aid you in setting goals and putting together a training/ diet programme to achieve those goals.
8. If you fall, jump back on!
Don’t give up as soon as you slip up. Remind yourself why you’ve set a goal and give it another go! You will probably be more motivated not to fail again the second time round!

Follow these steps and you’re sure to succeed! Good luck and make 2014 your best year yet!
Christian Vila,
Brighton Kettlebells.
