783 words - 4 pages

Introduction
At present, obesity has become a real problem in our community. It has expanded significantly. This made me interested in the reasons of this phenomenon. In my university, many women and men suffer from obesity and they ask “How can we balance our diet?’’ This report is important for them to organize their life by knowing the amounts of food that they must eat. However, I chose this topic because there are a lot of information on the internet and I was really interested on results. The purpose of this report is to find out the types of food that must university students eat every day and how can they keep their weights stable.

Survey Findings
I used Google Drive to do my survey and I sent the survey link to my classmates to solve it. The survey was completed on 27 October by 34 respondents.

The nationality of the respondents were almost entirely Arab. 35% were Qatari while, 47% of them were from other Arab countries and 9% of people were from other GCC. Most male had a weight between 70 to 80 while, most female had a weight between 60 to 70.
According to the survey 6 male and 11 female eat 3 meals in a day. 76% of men respondents say that lunch and dinner are the most important male. On the other hand, 46% of women choose the breakfast meal. Many respondents choose numbers 3 and 4 which show that they do not know if they are satisfied with their meals or not. Also, 18 women prefer to have vegetables, fruits, grains, meat and beans in their meals while, 6 men prefer to have grains, meat, beans, burger and chips. There were some strange findings. No one from men choose vegetables and fruits.
The survey showed that female like fast food more than male. Over 60 percent of those who responded thinks that teens are eating most fast food. In addition, there are three men and twelve women who have a family member or friends who got food poisoning by eating fast food. However, 38% of male respondents see that fast food is a waste of our money while, most of the female respondents are not sure.
