World Obesity Day is observed annually on October 11 to promote various practical solutions for reducing the number of obese people. It is organised by a non-profit body called World Obesity Federation in collaboration with the World Health Organisation.
This year, the organisation focuses on child and adolescent obesity, mainly because there is a rapid increase in the number of obese people under this category. Since the population under the age of 20 is highly inspired by the glamorous world of entertainment, here is a list of fittest celebrities in television, including Quantico actress Priyanka Chopra and New Girl star Max Greenfield.
