The problem

The USA is ranked 12th in obesity

 

  • Men, obesity 40.3%
  • Women, obesity 39.7%
  • For children ages 2 to 19, obesity 17%

 

  • 300,000 Americans die each year due to the obesity
  • An obese person annual medical costs are $1,429 or higher
  • 30% of all U.S. spending on health care is related to obesity

 

The findings were published as a National Health Statistics Report on Dec. 20.

New research reveals that most Americans have grown wider but not taller in the past two decades.

Height measurements remained relatively stable during the past 20 years, even dropping slightly between 2015 and 2016 for some groups. But the weight, waist circumference and body mass index (BMI) of many kept increasing

 

1999-2000 through 2015-2016, showing an increase of over 8 pounds in men and 7 pounds in women over this time period and overall, no increase in height,” As of 2016, the U.S. average weight for men was 198 pounds, and 170 pounds for women. Generally, doctors and nutritionists classify people as either underweight, healthy weight, overweight, or obese. These different classifications are determined by body mass index (BMI), or a measure of body fat based on your height and weight.

The average American ate almost 20% more calories in the year 2000 than they did in 1983, thanks, in part, to a boom in meat consumption. Today, each American puts away an average of 195lbs of meat every year, compared to just 138lbs in the 1950’s. Consumption of added fats also shot up by around two thirds over the same period, and grain consumption rose 45% since 1970.

Problems of weight gaining:

Too many calories

Too much sugar

Little or no exercises

Too much fast food

Too much-processed food

Confusing misinformation

Bigger food portions in restaurants

Added chemicals in food

High cost for healthy foods

Only 20% of today’s jobs require moderate physical activity, as opposed to 50% of jobs in 1960

We spend over $20 billion annually on weight loss schemes, from diet books and pills all the way up to last-resort surgeries like lap-bands and liposuction.
