According to the latest South African Demographic and Health Survey conducted in 2016, it was reported that 35.9% of women aged 15 to 49 years are obese, as well as a significantly smaller amount of 7.9% of men. It is also known that a further 30% of women in South Africa are overweight, meaning that approximately 66% of women in SA are either overweight or obese.
This means that the prevalence of obesity in South African women is three times higher than the global average, and this is concerning.
