Graph -1 - Obesity among younger increase over time

The facts that American kids, teenagers and adults are getting obese and obesity generally. These data are recorded for more than 50 years.

Data for kids and teenagers were taken several times from period of 1963 to 2014 (please see Graph -1).

In case of adults, both women and men tend to obese. But, women more obese than men since 1960. The data continue to periods of 2013 to 2014 as shown on Graph -2 at below.

Surprisingly that the following facts are not changes or almost the same for 50 years:
- Eating the same amount of food
- Consume the same quantities of calories, fat and protein
- Doing the same amount of physical exercises.

The question then why are We getting obese now Days?

Graph -2 – Increasing of obesity between men and women

Some experts suggested the following possible reasons (needed to be studied furthermore:

- Life style such as infant with less or without breast-fed are obese more than infants with breast-fed more than 3 months

- Increasing of drug using especially prescription drugs which in fact relate to obesity.

- Changing of our microorganisms in our intestines. It is believed the current type of gut microorganisms are relate to weight gain.

- We probably expose to more chemical environments such as food processing and pesticides. These lead to hormonal work to cause obesity.

  8. A problem that afflicts all opulent nations, they are hardly obese among African populations in Africa, if not among the wealthy.
    There are many reasons, in addition to sedentary life, a bad diet, but also a lack of true affection that leads to throwing oneself on food as a reward.
    Hi Evi, thanks for this interesting post.

  9. Thanks for your informative article 😊

  10. For sure it has to do a lot about our lifestyle.

  11. Better lifestyle but not so healthy.

  12. Sometimes dinner out is difficult to control and causes fat

  13. In passato esistevano meno pericoli oggettivi, che nel periodo odierno...

  15. Secondo me mangiamo troppo, e sai quando mangiamo troppo?
    Quando ci annoiamo.
    Non siamo più abituati ad essere annoiati.
    Abbiamo delle vite organizzate al secondo e non sapere cosa fare anche per un lasso di tempo minimo ci mette in crisi e quindi: mangiamo.

  16. Scary! Lots of processed foods, so much choice in foods too. Less excercise and TV/Computer games.

  17. Good read! My family we try to eat healthy but sometimes its not working out :(

  18. I think that your articles are true contributions of information that also urge you to think about many things that we usually let go without even noticing them for a moment. Regarding the causes of obesity that you point out, I think the answer may come from the fact that we have become people and societies with no respect for the environment, hacked by chemicals, pesticides and modern stress. If the world is another as it obviously is today, we should change our habits and behave in a more human and healthy way.

    Bigger and bigger hugs, Evi...

  19. has changed terribly to our disadvantage

  20. We have to change our lifestyle!
    Interesting topic!
    Kisses, Paola.

  30. We should definitely go back to the old days when we were not modifying foods and using tons of pesticides. Medications are prescribed too readily leaving many feeling as though they need to be taking certain medicines when there are natural ways to get the same result.

    Здоровья всем!

  38. My BMI is still OK, but I feel the "fat" is lurking! LOL

  39. Excellent post.
    I think that the food we eat and the more sedentary life we live today contributes a lot to the increase in obesity.

    1. I Agree - Great Point Maria - So Much To See Outdoors - Stay Strong Folks
