Feb 1, 2010
Abner Mercado will tackle the case of a 371-pound man in the upcoming episode of The Correspondents.

Despite the poverty in the country, many Filipinos are said to be weighing more than they should. A study also showed 82 percent of Filipinos cannot even refuse an invitation to eat.

This Tuesday (February 2) on The Correspondents, Abner Mercado will explore the different dining habits of Filipinos and see how some of them end up to become overweight.

With a weight of 371 lbs, Noel is one of Filipinos considered to be obese. His normal life has now become abnormal as little things like climbing the stairs and putting his shoes on have become difficult to do. He said it's harder to resist his hunger than to exercise.

Find out the attitude of other Filipinos when it comes to food with Abner Mercado on The Correspondents, Tuesday (February 2) right after Bandila on ABS-CBN.
