Body Mass Index in the UK - Lists the % of underweight, normal, 'pre-obese' and obese adults in the UK.

From the WHO Guide - http://apps.who.int/bmi/index.jsp

5% Underweight (Green)
Body Mass Index is probably the best way of determining whether someone is over or under weight. The statistics for the UK are: 5% Underweight 34% Normal 38% Slightly above normal 23% Obese This means that 72% of the population are normal or slightly above and only around a quarter of the population have weight problems. Compare that to the USA, where only 65% are normal or slightly above and a huge 1/3 of the population is obese. It is true that, in your own country (the Philippines), nearly 2/3 of the population is 'normal' and there are far fewer people who are either over or underweight (16%) but this is because our diets, racial characteristics and climates are very different. There is an interesting map here: http://chartsbin.com/view/577 showing the average overall BMI for the countries of the world which demonstrates that Great Britain is, on average, 'normal' while most other developed countries are 'overweight' (and Egyptians are, apparently, 'obese' on average!).
