Anorectic teenagers and obese middle-aged people - this is happening nowadays only in Portugal. It is a strange situation,repparttar least to say. Nearly two-fifths of all Portuguese of 18 to 65 are overweight and no less than 15 percent are already obese while over 8% of all 18 and 19 year olds are extremely thin (twice than inrepparttar 131436 same age group in 1995). These facts were released in September 2004, after a study had been carried out and cited by Agency France-Presse. What do these two statistics disclose?

1. on one hand,repparttar 131437 health of people of 18 to 65 (active Portugaese) is highly threatened by heart disease, stroke and diabetes 2. onrepparttar 131438 other hand, many teens of Portugal suffer from eating disorders (it is argued that they have a repulsive reaction to obesity and they are obsessed with their look).

Asrepparttar 131439 Portuguese have changed their eating habits lately, adding more sweets and fatty foods into their meals,repparttar 131440 obesity range highly increased. A review of their eating habits reveals that many people go to work with no breakfast. Around ten o’clock inrepparttar 131441 morning there isrepparttar 131442 "coffee break", which is usually taken with a lot of sweet cakes, rolls, croissants. Lunch is regularly around one o’clock and means meat (codfish, veal, pork, chicken, rabbit) and potatoes (raw vegetables are rarely eaten). Another coffee break is around five o’clock. Dinner is at eight and consists of meat primarily. The Portuguese eat soup often but after a meal, not before. The famous caldo verde soup is preferred, in spite ofrepparttar 131443 fact that it contains a potentially lethal piece of cholesterol rich sausage.

Besides, Portugal is invaded by fast food, especially hamburger outlets like McDonalds. Not only large cities, but also small towns have a McDonalds. Not to mentionrepparttar 131444 other fast-food outlets, which make things worse forrepparttar 131445 Portuguese.
