I've been watching this forum for a while after I found it looking for info about housing in the USSR. I have read nearly every thread in the Back in the USSR forum and have learned alot and I'm wondering if someone knows if overweight and obesity was common in the Soviet Union?

It was uncommon but present (being underweight was even more uncommon through). Overweight and obesity were quite big issues in some Eastern Bloc countries like Czechoslovakia, Hungary and East Germany through.
