Obesity in France
Even though French are among the thinner Europeans (see chart below), obesity in France has been increasingly cited as a major health issue in recent years.

There is a myth about French people not getting overweight or obese however France is only ranked as the 128th fattest country in the World, one of the lowest rank among developed countries and French food has long been studied for its healthy diet.
