It's not just english woman, it's an epademic worldwide, why I even see Oriental people looking chubbier! It's all this convenience food, and fast food we shovel down our throats, (it's full of c.r.a.p!), The only way to be fit is to eat well. BTW just 'cos someone is pin thin or even slim doesn't make them healthy! Chances are they eat c.r.a.p. and skip meals. Sad but true!
