Seems like everyone just eats and drinks, but nobody is fat. I actually don’t see many people exercising either. Is it the smoking?
I noticed the same. I never saw anybody out running & rarely saw an exercise gym. Our friend from Germany visits here every couple of years & I recall one day we drove by a small group of runners & she asked why people are so obsessed with exercising here (U.S.) She also likes to mention we take everything so serious here. Exercising is extreme, eating is extreme, work is extreme. Maybe they practice more moderation.
Also must be the taking public transportation & walking that keeps Europeans slim. Plus there's less sugar in their sweets & some meals are smaller proportions. Of course the smoking helps.
Don't worry though, Britain isn't too far behind us in terms of obesity.
