Have heard over here on blogs to avoid sugars, grains and soy - works well so far! Also dairy (oh my mugs of tea! - Haven't managed that yet....). Good luck to everyone trying to lose weight!

they have incredible sweets (because alcohol is prohibited, they get their boost out of sugar, like in other Islamic countries).

Uh-oh. I never knew that or even thought about it or would have even guessed. Thanks Carrie.

When your country produces nothing but oil, and you have money coming out your eyeballs so that you don't have to work and get foreigners to do all your housework, hey what else is there to do? You can't drink alcohol, listen to music, talk to girls. No wonder!

Who needs the military- let KFC take care of it.

Overeating could be due to unbalanced nutrition. There may be inadequate supplies of necessary minerals, vitamins or other nutrients.
More likely it is the emptiness people face when they have everything they thought would make them happy. That causes fear and depression. Transient relief is gained by overeating and acquiring more 'stuff". Billionaires can't have enough mansions, yachts, jets etc. The more they get, the bigger the void, the gaping abyss that threatens to devour them.
These fat people are not the billionaires. They are just the very well off middle class in Kuwait. They must settle for just overeating.
Yes, KFC has something to do with it too.

Not surprising. Most of them have never done a day's work in their lives.
