Queensland remains fattest State

The latest Fitness First Magazine (Nov 2010, p. 127) reports that 60% of adults in Queensland are overweight or obese (i.e. with a Body Mass Index of 25 or over), based on new research conducted by Galaxy Research.  The full results were:

  • Qld:    60% overweight or obese
  • WA:    59%
  • SA:      58%
  • NSW:  55%
  • Vic:     44%
  • Tas:    44%

This confirms Queensland’s status as the fattest State, as noted in this previous Queensland Economy Watch post:
