The world needs to give us Arabs a break, wallah. Isn’t it bad that we barely survived summer and the pressure it put on us to look fit? Gazette Review have released a survey that revealed the top 10 fattest countries in the world, and to our surprise (not really), six of them are in the Middle East and North Africa. Ya fede7etna!

It was just bound to happen. This year over 40% of the world’s adult population is considered obese.
