Jun 23 - The Prevalence Of Obesity In The US Has Increased By ~40% Over 20 Years
 

 
Newly published research from BYU exercise science researchers reveals critical, rare data detailing the severity of the obesity epidemic in the United States.

The article, published in the Journal of Obesity, looked at the long-term weight gain of more than 13,800 U.S. adults — a rare data point unearthed in obesity research. They found that more than half of American adults in the study gained 5% or more body weight over a 10-year period. What’s more, more than a third of American adults gained 10% or more body weight and almost a fifth gained 20% or more body weight.

“The U.S. obesity epidemic is not slowing down,” said study lead author Larry Tucker, a BYU professor of exercise science. “Without question, 10-year weight gain is a serious problem within the U.S. adult population.”

Study participants were selected randomly as part of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, an annual survey that examines a nationally representative sample. NHANES is a CDC-sponsored series of studies that began in the early 1960s and became a continuous program in 1999.

Using the NHANES data, the study also found that 10-year weight gain was significantly greater in women than in men, with women gaining about twice as much weight: 12 pounds on average for women compared to 6 pounds for men. Weight gain also differed across races, with Black women experiencing the greatest average weight gain over the 10-year period (19.4 pounds) and Asian men experiencing the least (2.9 pounds).

As far as age goes, the greatest gains in weight were found in young and middle-aged adults; less weight is gained as age increases. According to the data, on average Americans gain the following weight:

17.6 pounds between their 20s and 30s
14.3 pounds between their 30s and 40s
9.5 pounds between their 40s and 50s
4.6 pounds between their 50s and 60s

If adults gain the average amount of weight during each decade of adult life, they will have gained more than 45 pounds, which would push many of them into the obese category. According to the Department of Health and Human Services and the CDC, 42.4% of U.S. adults are currently obese. That’s up substantially from the 30.5% measured in 2000.

“In roughly 20 years, the prevalence of obesity increased by approximately 40% and severe obesity almost doubled,” Tucker said. “By knowing who is more likely to become obese, we can help health care providers and public health officials focus more on at-risk individuals.”

BYU graduate student Kayla Parker is also an author on the study.

I’ve always been told that people gain weight at a higher rate as they get older due to a slower metabolism, less activity etc. This study proves the contrary.

You don't gain more. It's just harder to lose what you've gained over the years. Which is why people (especially women) who lead unhealthy lifestyles throughout their 20s are absolutely fu*ked when they hit 30-40.



I'll admit I'm a hypocrite for liking this girl but I like t*tties



But she's a prime example of someone who is gonna look absolutely fu*king horrible once she hits 30-35. Even worse if she gets pregnant. Cosmetic surgeons, bariatric surgeons, cardiologists and psychiatrists gonna be running up nothing but commas for the foreseeable future

And before you incels reply to this expressing your misogynistic joy... don't act like you're exempt from this especially since testosterone in men starts tanking post 30



All of this can simply be avoided by a healthy diet and frequent exercise though

Our food is also getting more and more garbage. And parents that either don't have the time or don't have the money probably don't feed their children the best. I feel like it's gonna get worse it's already expensive to eat good and prices of sh*t are goin up faster than usual right now

Parents can meal prep. Even if it's only for a couple nights a week they prepare for, it can be done.

4 dollars for a pack of caprisun. Water is $1-1.50 per gallon.

Pressure cookers are generally affordable now. To can toss a bunch of sh*t in there, hit cook or set the timer and check on it at the end of the day. Fresh produce has actually seen the smallest increase in price out of all food groups since inflation got out of hand.

Keep your amount of OILS (fat) VERY LOW. Either Water Sauté, or sauté in broth.
