The entry of weightmonitor UAE in the region comes against the backdrop of rising cases of obesity with the average UAE resident being classified as being overweight with a BMI of about 25.6, a statistic, which, according to the spokesman, the program aims to reverse.

Obesity continues to be a serious concern among Dubai and UAE residents at large with current statistics painting a grim picture of the situation. A recent survey by Zurich International Life showed that slightly over 47 per cent of UAE residents were overweight with most of them clocking a BMI of between 25 and 30.
