Eight out of 10 of middle-aged people in the UK weigh too much, drink too much or do not exercise enough, analysis from Public Health England (PHE) shows.

.

Modern life is harming the health of the nation, according to the organisation, which has launched a campaign, One You, aimed at the 83% of 40 to 60-year-olds  87% of men and 79% of women in this age bracket  who are overweight or obese, exceed the chief medical officers alcohol guidelines or are physically inactive.

.

Obesity is one of the biggest problems for this group: 77% of men and 63% of women in middle age are overweight or obese. Obesity in adults has risen by 16% in the past 20 years. Research shows that many people cannot identify a healthy body, suggesting being overweight has become the new normal.

.

Prof Sir Muir Gray, a clinical adviser to One You, said: The demands of modern day living are taking their toll on the health of the nation and its those in middle age that are suffering the consequences most, as their [ill-]health reaches worrying new levels.

.

More than 15 million Britons are living with a long-term health condition, and busy lives and desk jobs make it difficult to live healthily. But just making a few small changes will have significant benefits to peoples health now and in later life.

.

Many more middle-aged people are being diagnosed with diabetes, with the rate among the 40-60 age group doubling in the past 20 years. Obese adults are more than five times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes, which 90% of adults with diabetes have, than those who are a healthy weight  have a body mass index of between 18.5 and 24.9.

.

Dan Howarth, the head of care at Diabetes UK, said: We know that people often bury their heads in the sand when it comes to their general health, but the consequences of doing nothing can be catastrophic.
