Are Americans Really Getting Fatter?


Newspaper Headline America Is Getting Fatter

The CDC notes that two-thirds of all Americans are either overweight or obese. What is more, the average American is nearly two dozen pounds heavier than his or her ideal body weight. Clearly, unwanted weight gain is a problem that plagues millions of people from all walks of life.

The fact that Americans are getting fatter does not bode well for future generations. As an increasing number of people weigh more than they should, everyone becomes accustomed to overweight being "the new normal". This causes a cultural shift that can impede children and young people from striving to maintain a healthier weight. It is a vicious cycle that will continue to get worse unless enough people make the effort to shed the extra pounds and maintain a healthy figure.

Thankfully, losing weight does not mean starving yourself or only eating bland, tasteless foods. The fact is that you can lose weight while still enjoying the foods you like in moderation. What is more, losing weight while still eating three square meals a day is the most logical way to keep the pounds off.

Naturally, it will take time to learn proper dietary habits, especially if you are in the habit of eating whatever you want, whenever you want it. You will need to eat more fruits, vegetables and lean meats and fewer fattening foods such as white rice, white bread and junk foods. However, the good news is that there are many easy to prepare, healthy recipes that make it easy for you to enjoy eating without putting on extra weight. It takes only a little time and some ingenuity to prepare yourself tasty, healthy meals and snacks and the good results are more than worth the effort.

MRC of Vancouver started me going in my attempt to loose 30 years of weight gain!! I have been using their program for about 18 months and have actually lost 30 pounds. I have changed the way I eat. I've learned what foods are best for ME. By analyzing my DNA and hormones, they helped me learn to eat what was right for me. I have "tweeked" my purchases and preparation of food to make eating healthy and still fun for me. I eat lots of veggies and salads and include a healthy diet of protein. These are very satisfying. Do I "cheat" now and then? Yes, but I don't like how I feel after eating sugar and lots of carbs so I return to my good foods quickly and continue to see my weight drop. I walk my little dog four times a day and have a part-time job that allows me a lot of movement. I feel so healthy and wonderful. It's easy to continue to eat and live a more healthy lifestyle! When I confessed about eating the wrong "foods", the gals simply encouraged me and gave me fresh ideas to satisfy my taste buds. I always felt I could be honest during my consultations with no fear of being lectured! I plan to continue until I reach my desired weight. I expect to reach my goal by 2017. After I reach my weight goal, I plan to remain in good health with my new found healthy way of eating the calories I need to maintain my proper weight. My Dr. is very pleased at my progress. She wondered how I have lost 30 pounds.
