It is found out in a survey in England that tourists return home about 6lb heavier after a two-week vacation in Turkey.
The survey was made by a well known weight loss company. Turkey takes ninth place in the list of the most fattening 10 countries. 2000 English people were questioned and they revealed that the U.S is on top of this list. It is found that average tourist gains 8lb during a two-week trip to the U.S.
Half of the interviewees blamed huge portions for gaining weight while the other half said that it is because of lounging around. Four in ten said that the reason is alcohol and one in five said it is due to buffet meals at hotels. Half of holidaymakers said that they realise they have gained weight after coming back. One in five understand this only when they look through their holiday pictures.
