I do not mean to offend anyone by that statement – but its true.

A recent health survey performed across Canada claims that about half of the adults that live in the Winnipeg health region are overweight and one in every 7 are obese.

The survey states that 16.7 per cent of the adult males and 12.6 per cent of the females in the Winnipeg Regional health region are considered obese.

In total, 49.6 per cent of the adult population was considered over their acceptable weight: 58.9 per cent of that were men and 40.7 per cent were women.

My trip to the Ex with MarkD and Oli did not help those statistics at all.
