United Kingdom 13 - New Zealand 1
No this isn’t the score following a rugby match …it is in fact the top thirteen countries as having the highest quality of life. United Kingdom got 13th place and the number one spot went to New Zealand …I know for sure Lynda at ‘Living the Life’ blog would agree 100% …as she lives in Auckland.
Apparently Britain (UK) has been identified as having one of the highest qualities of life in the world. A new study from The Social Progress Imperative has put the country 13th in the world - ahead of the US, France, Ireland and Spain. However, it was outclassed by a number of countries, including New Zealand, the Netherlands (the best-performing country in the EU), Canada (the best in the G8) and Germany (which took 12th place): and our Achilles Heel is that we're just too fat.
We obviously still need to do more to further the word, that by following a low carb high fat lifestyle it is possible to reduce weight, to see an improvement to blood sugar numbers ….plus a whole host of other benefits. You only have to look at the many success stories, the good health and lifestyle stories there are when living the LCHF lifestyle….and it is a lifestyle not a diet.
Anyway back to ‘The SPI’ report the countries that fared the best are:
1) New Zealand 2) Switzerland 3) Iceland 4) The Netherlands 5) Norway 6) Sweden 7) Canada 8) Finland 9) Denmark 10) Australia 11) Austria 12) Germany 13) The UK
