New stats highlight obesity epidemic
New studies show Australians in remote or regional areas are struggling to keep their weight in check, with 4 out of 5 overweight.
Roy Morgan research has found 70% of people in Bourke, Dubbo, Broken Hill and Orange are officially overweight or obese.
Waistlines in towns in the Illawarra and South Coast aren't far behind, with 68% of people in Kiama, Eden and Batemans Bay
needing to shed kilos.
