Obesity and the Numbers

Overweight and obesity rates have been on the rise in both men and women over the years. Looking at some statistics from Civil Eats in partnership with UC Berkeley, the calorie intake has increased by 500 more calories per day on average since 1970. obesity On top of that, their research found that Americans are burning an average 100 calories less per day than what they were burning in 1970. This calculates out weight gain over the past four decades to 87% due to diet and a mere 13% of weight gain as a result of lack in physical activity. So while exercise is essential to weight loss, weight gain has been primarily impacted by increased caloric intake and decreased physical activity. If this trend continues, three out of four people are projected to be overweight or obese within the next 10 years.
