London: Almost half of all adults in Britain who are obese think they look “normal” because they see so many other fat people, health experts have claimed.Despite being dangerously overweight, they actually believe they are actually in good physical shape, along with most of the people they encounter in their day-to-day lives.According to researchers, that is because the number of Brits who are above average weight outnumber those who are average or below average by a ratio of two to one, the Daily Mail reported.With an estimated two thirds of the population classed as overweight, being fat has become the norm and clouded an ability to recognise a healthy body shape.Just as catwalk models make it seem “normal” to be too thin to young women, so the sight of millions of porky Brits make it seem normal to be fat to millions of others.A poll of 2,000 Brits by healthcare giant Bupa found more than half of those medically classed as obese believe they have a `normal` body shape.And around half also believe they eat a healthy diet, even though the evidence suggests they do not.
