Saskatchewan has a lot of overweight people.
Numbers from a community health survey done by Statistics Canada show almost 46 percent of Saskatchewan residents had a body mass index greater than 30. That leads the provinces.
That is an increase of over 30 percent from 2004 numbers.
The survey was done in 2015 and involved over 1000 adults and children from across Saskatchewan in both urban cities and rural centres. People on reserves were not included.
In breaking down the numbers, obesity rates were higher in women than men with the 55-64 demographic leading the way in Saskatchewan.
The country as a whole sees 26.7 percent of those surveyed are considered as obese.
