This report contains data from ScotCen's Scottish Social Attitudes survey. It looks at how overweight and obesity and their consequences are recognised by people in Scotland. It also discusses barriers to maintaining a healthy weight, diet and physical activity. It then goes on to discuss who is responsible for reducing obesity, and what public support there is for this.
