Wow! A study just released that shows that adults in the U.S. will grow not just in their size but in sheer numbers. 65 million more obese adults are expected to be counted in census reaching 2030, which just goes to show that we should really be thinking about a better meal plan.
Why is this number growing? It must be the economy effecting people to eat lower quality foods and or depression. But the simple fact of the matter must be that the people are not eating healthy foods and resorting to convenience foods which are causing these problems. Parents at an early age must not teaching kids how to eat healthy.
Studies should really be announced and enforced by the government and media more often, when you hear something like this doesn’t it sound awful? Why isn’t the government enforcing stricter regulations about nutrition and restrict fast food places. Start up chains of healthy restaurants and penalize the restaurants that don’t change their menus to something healthier.
In the past 20 years there has been a sharp increase in the amount of overweight people in the United States. Every state has been set yo have at least 20-30% obese people who are in huge health risks. Health risks are taking a huge toll on the economy however, and billions of dollars will be spent to maintain the health costs of this population.
Common health risks include Heart and Kidney Diseases and several forms of cancer. We all know how everyone enjoys a good hamburger, but how about picking up a salad every once and awhile guys?
I took a trip into the United States last year and I visited Dallas, Texas. While I was there I notice the plate sized portions were huge and there was a burger joint on every corner. While we all love a good deal and love good-sized meals, it really is not practical. For example, look at the people in Europe they are completely different.
People in Europe eat very tiny portions and they all look very slim and healthy normally. It’s all about portion sizes, the more you eat in one sitting the more food gets stored as fat. Maybe they could do a national broadcast all over the states and explain that one fact, then maybe it might save a few lives.
Anyways, I wont rant any-more on this subject for today. If you have any comments I would love to hear from you, leave some below for me and I will be sure to respond to them. And shouldn’t the pick work the other way around? There should be a big strong muscle-bound man on the other end of the spectrum!
