An abstract is required. The available statistics on obesity among the adult population in UK unveils facts on the rapid spread of the same. Earlier, women in UK were easily affected by obesity and related health problems. But now, situation is different and men in UK are not safe because they also face the problem of obesity and related health problems. This proves that male adults must be more serious and conscious about the rapid increase of obesity among them. Korbonits (2008, p.118) states that ‘obesity is a growing healthcare problem with 20% of UK’. So the rate of obesity among the people in UK shows rapid growth. Stomach obesity is most common among male adults but less common among female adults. Pryke (2006, p.120) states that ‘Three- quarters of the UK adult population are now overweight with 22% of adults in the obese range’. One can see that the rate of obesity among UK adults is showing rapid increase. Besides, UK has the highest rate of obese population among the European countries.
