The Data Shows Otherwise

Most American’s do not think they are fat. That can’t be farther from the truth.

According to a new poll conducted by Gallop, 63 percent of respondents did not think they are overweight. When compared with data from the National Center for Health Statistics, it looks like American need a wake up call: 69% of Americans over 20 years old are considered overweight or obese.

I'm pretty sure it's not a uniquely American brand of denial... chuckle.gif

It's almost as if it's a mass denial situation or are the somewhat obese comparing themselves to the morbidly obese and thinking they are just fine? blink.gif

I'm 6-2, 220 lbs, and have a 34 waist.
Been like this for more than 40 years.

I'm in my seventh decade on Earth. I know things.

No you don't usually ask for your leftovers in a bag here either. chuckle.gif

About a million years ago, someone told me to eat breakfast fit for a King, lunch fit for a Prince, and to give my supper to someone I didn't like.

Did you have scrambled dinosaur eggs for breakfast when you were young?

that is not only the best policy for good eating habits and body health, but it is also really good for the brain. It has an effect on both the alpha and theta waves.

I do all that in reversed order, not eating much in the morning, small lunch and a huge dinner. chuckle.gif I still am the same size and weight as in high school.

Fat storage around the waist is the worst for you too. I store excess fat there as well and I don't like that one bit. 13.gif So I try to not expand so much. I eat quite a lot of fat though, but no grains or sugar and that seems to do the trick. I think it's important for women to get plenty of fat. 13.gif

I too heard a million years ago, don't eat anything after 7 p.m. if you want to lose weight. I mean really, the information has been out there for anyone to heed.

I really don't pay any attention to eat or not to eat based on the clock. I eat if I'm hungry even if it's after midnight. But then again I'm not trying to lose weight 13.gif
