Waistlines across the UK are spiraling out of control leading to increased risk of deadly diseases and premature deaths, health campaigners have warned.

.

More than two thirds of people in the UK are now considered to be either overweight or obese, according to the latest figures.

.

Despite government warnings that we are turning into a nation of couch potatoes  risking debilitating illnesses such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes  our bulges keep ballooning.

.

Yet Prime Minister believes she has the answer to tackling Britains obesity timebomb.

.

What is Mrs Mays plan?

.

She unveiled her plan of action for tackling obesity in the UK in August this year.

.

While stopping short of setting targets, the plan aims to significantly reduce Englands rate of childhood obesity within the next 10 years.

.

To discourage children from munching too many calories, the government will seek to introduce a sugar tax on the soft drinks industry from 2018.

.

Alongside the sugar levy, the food and drink firms will be asked to slash 5% of sugar in drinks popular with children.

.

Ultimately, the target is to cut 20% of sugar from all soft drinks, but the reductions are only voluntary.

.

Other measures include urging schools to deliver at least 30 minutes of mandatory exercise a day and encouraging parents to push their children be more active at home.

.

How else could Mrs May tackle fat Britain?

.

Lobbyists are calling for fish and chip shops to standardise the size of their portions to combat obesity.

.

Research from industry body Seafish found that 44% of consumers end up throwing some of their chips away, while 45% would order smaller portions to cut calories.

.

Seafish spokesperson Tom Pickerell said standard portion sizes would mean customers know what to expect, and therefore manage their diets more effectively.

.

Although there are no plans to introduce the reccommendations at government level, the research could possibly influnce policy in the future.
