Interesting observation. You're onto something... if London is anything to go by. Here the vast majority of women are between 17-19% bf, or else are overweight. Women like me (20-22%) are more rare; even though you'd think this is the easier weight range to maintain.

In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
