Statista dossier on diet and body mass index in the United Kingdom (UK)

This dossier presents a range of statistics and facts about diet and body mass index in the United Kingdom. Body mass index (BMI) is a measure of whether you're a healthy weight for your height, taking into account your size and shape. Having a raised BMI above the healthy range indicates you are at risk of serious health problems. This is a common trend in the UK with the number of obese and overweight individuals growing. An unhealthy diet is directly correlated with an overweight body mass index.
