Everyone is OBESE

Ok, not everyone, but the CDC  reports that 34% of American adults are OBESE.

The data means that no state met the Healthy People 2010 goal to bring obesity rates below 20% over the past decade. Healthy People is an initiative of the Department of Health and Human Services to promote health and wellness in individuals and communities. Healthy People 2020 includes a target obesity rate of 30%.

CDC data from the National Nutrition Health and Examination Survey in which people are weighed and measured indicates that about 34% of U.S. adults, almost 73 million people, are obese. A person is considered obese if he or she is roughly 30 or more pounds over a healthy weight. Extra weight raises the risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer and other problems.

I am sure that number is too low. Granted, it is adults and not everyone. The number of obese children is skyrocketing. Don’t believe me, go to your kids school and count them.

Please change American adults. You are the example for your children. Stop blaming genetics, society, or medicine. You are doing it, you are the cause of your obesity. Your lifestyle is forcing you down a path of a constant weight battle that no exercise can correct. You must realize what you eat (but not how much), how you sleep, and how you live your life create your diseases. There is nothing good about being over weight. Learn to be a human again. Humans are lean, muscular, and agile.
