90 percent of Americans could be overweight by 2030

Posted on Aug 18, 2008 by Maggie LaBarbera

I know I am usually blogging about children nutrition but this number was too scary so I had to read the article. And since parents are the prime role model for children's food habits.... there's lot so reason to pay attention.

This study was based off an analysis of the weight gains in American since 1970's. If the same trend line continues than we end up with the warning....nine out of ten Americans will be overweight or obese.

Currently, there are about 2/3s or 66% of American who are overweight or obese...and about 1/3 of our kids. There have been some recent studies that have shown some "flattening" of the trend, so perhaps some of us are starting to change our habits.

That is what is boils down to. Can we change some of our habits? Can we take the stairs instead of the elevator? Can we walk some places instead of drive? Can we grab a piece of fruit rather than a bag of chips? We can change our destiny by working on some key habits.

And the good news. Small changes do add up, so we don't have to change everything all at once.
