Larger louting in UK more fun than working out

How shallow are the Brits, anyway? And how unhealthy?

In a survey reported by the BBC, Brits ‘dying not to do exercise’, almost a third of 18 to 24-year-olds reported they would do more exercise if they saw an unflattering photo of themselves or were told they looked fat.

Others would work out only if they were attracted to someone at the gym.

Only 38% of people questioned by the survey said they would do more exercise if their life depended on it — 61% said, in effect, “piss off.”

Only a third of all Brits manage to do enough exercise to achieve the minimum amount for a healthy life.

Only 4% said they found exercise fun.

Why don’t the Brits exercise? One in seven blames it on the weather.
