So what happened to Malta, don't they consume a Mediterranean diet or is it full of fish and chip shops? There are chubbers everywhere (here too as I was behind some in Coop this morning...guess what language they were speaking, and in most cases so are all the ingredients for a healthy diet. It's just whether people want to eat rubbish or not and sadly there are too many bloaters in the UK as a result, and in Malta it would seem. Maybe they suffer from the same problem as they OP, bad food choice when at home, and an ability to want to lay the blame on the country not the person who buys, prepares, and ultimately eats it.
Malta isn't full of fish and chip shops (in fact there are very few) and there are only a few McDs and KFCs. Fresh fish is relatively expensive but there is a good supply of fresh fruit and veg.

However, I suspect that the main culprit in the island's obesity stats is the national speciality ... the Pastizzi. This is a delicious, small pasty made with filo/puff pastry and filled with either ricotta or mushy peas and baked until golden. Small kiosks sell these everywhere and do a fantastic trade. The problem is that each one contains just under 400 calories

From newsweek:
101 Best Places to Eat: Europe

The headlines in Italy are all about this "one-tooth" old lady in Bari who seels fried polenta in the streets of Bari and deeply impressed Jamie Oliver:
