I just moved to Bondi from India – I need to know how you are all so fit, healthy and beautiful?
An expat has raved about the beauty and fitness of Australians after leaving India.
After moving to Sydney, the anonymous traveler said that most residents who live on the east coast in Bondi are fit and healthy compared to their home countries.
“How are Australians so fit?” He wrote, much to the amusement of many people in Australia.
“I recently moved to Sydney and the majority of people I have seen are physically active and in good shape. What are your fitness and healthcare routines? » the Redditor wrote.
However, Australians quickly shut down that claim and said this was not the case for the general population.

The thread attracted more than 500 comments with many pointing out how many Australian adults are overweight, likely due to a culture of binge drinking.
Although many also prioritize health and wellness to stay fit and healthy.
“Sport and physical exercise are simply more culturally anchored here. There are a lot of fat, unhealthy people around. It also depends on where you live,” one person wrote.
“Have you ventured outside the eastern suburbs?” said another.
A third bluntly said: “That’s not the case. More than two thirds of Australians over the age of 18 are overweight or obese. You’re probably in a hip, affluent suburb that’s full of fitter young people as a subculture.
“Fitness is strongly linked to income, so suburbs and inner cities follow. The wealth available gives plenty of time to stay fit,” someone else wrote.
In the comments, the original post revealed he lived in Bondi and most people there were “young, fit and active”.
However, Australians quickly put an end to this claim, as this is not the case for the general population (stock image: Palm Beach, photo)
According to Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) 67 per cent of Australian adults are overweight or obese. This represents approximately 12.5 million people.
The proportion of adults who are overweight or obese generally increases with age. This is seen in both men and women.
One in four children and adolescents (25%) aged 12 to 17 were overweight or obese in 2017-2018.
