Going For Gold: Dubai Offer Gold To Obese Citizens To Shed Kilos

With the alarming number of obese people in the world Dubai government has decided to take initiative to save the country's citizens, the country has introduced an unusual way to get its citizens to slim down to health.

 Municipal officials are offering a brick of gold to the citizens who lose more than 2 kilogram in a 30 days challenge, reports the daily mail.

The minimum weight that gets you qualified is 2 kilograms and there is no limit to how much one can earn.

Local media Wednesday quotes Dubai official Hussain Lootah as saying there is no limit on the payout for the golden losers, who must sign up and weigh in by Friday.

The Dubai challenge runs until 16 August, and three campaign-winning losers who enter a lucky draw will receive a gold coin each worth £3,500. Other golden slimmers will share gold coins worth a total £3,500.

The plan is the latest attempt to encourage healthier lifestyles in the United Arab Emirates. Across the Gulf Arab states, authorities have raised alarms about rising obesity from increasing fast-food diets and lack of exercise.
