Emiratis Eat Breakfast Daily, But Few Partake In Regular Physical Exercise

November 15, 2011: 06:51 PM EST
A nationwide survey conducted among 750 residents of the United Arab Emirates has found that about three-fourths eat breakfast daily and nearly two-thirds eat three meals a day. The bad news, however, is that 59 percent consider themselves obese or overweight, only six percent consider fruits and vegetables a key component of a healthy diet, and most of the respondents relieve daily stress by surfing the Internet or watching TV rather than engaging in physical activity. Forty-nine percent of the respondents were of Arab nationalities, and of these 22 percent were Emiratis. Asians, subcontinent and Western expats constituted 51 percent of the respondents.
