Abstract

Overweight and obesity are the epidemic of this century. According to World Health Organization, in Poland there are 45.6% overweight and 18% obese people. Weight gain is related to older age, smoking cessation, emigration to more developed country, pregnancy or menopause (women), marriage (men) and holiday time. Data concerning holidays, posts, weekends and their influence on body weight are really scarce, especially in Poland. Review of available data published suggest that holidays and days off work may raise body weight progressively. (Diabet. Prakt. 2011; 12, 5: 170–174)
