Eastern Europeans I meet and see out and about all seem to be in better shape than us, particularly the women are thin. What are they doing diet wise? They like a drink too. It seems to be Brits/Irish/Yanks that are the worst affected.

We also drink less than our grandparents generation I would imagine. Looking at past generations pictures and it's striking how there were no fatties.

Encourage people to drink more water.
Oh wait... they're going to tax people for using too much water.

Take the free travel passes off the unemployed, make them walk more.

Cars and SUVs are playing a key part. There are people apparently allergic to walk or cycle more than 50m under their own steam.

Marcin and Magda don't go for a curry cheese chip and batter burger after their drink. Diet.

"Problem solved"? Even though there would still be masses of other foods even higher in calories. Also which breakfast cereal? A bowl of high fibre cereal like Bran Flakes is obviously better than a bag of Doritos.

It does if you run and lift weights regularly.

And after they have their child got the 5 for €2 sausage rolls it’s straight to the drinks section for a bottle of coke and complete the breakfast with a bar of chocolate. Sorry two, one for the child and one for the parent.
Stuffing their faces then inside in their new pcp duster.

I think they don't drink as much pints either, they prefer spirits I think.
