The practice of holding summer barbeques are being seen as one of the major reasons for the rise of obesity in Britain, a group of health experts warned.

According to researchers from the Boots and the Tony Ferguson Weightloss Programme, men consume more than 3,500 calories in a single barbeque sitting while women consume more than 2,500 calories. Steaks, sausages and potato salads are some of the most commonly used eatables in barbeques.

The researchers went on to add that on an average, a family has nine barbeques every summer. Introducing a more healthy diet in the barbeques will go a long way in controlling the rise of obesity in the country, the researchers said.
