Study finds around half Israeli adults overweight

Around half of Israeli adults over 20 are overweight, according to a study released by the Central Bureau of Statistics.

The study finds that 55 percent of men and 41% of women are overweight, and that 24% of women dieted regularly as compared to 18% of men.

Over half of women, 58%, said they wanted to lose weight, while 46% of men said they wanted to lose weight.

Last year, an OECD study similarly found that over half of Israeli adults were overweight or obese.
