OK these reports say that obesity rates are at an all time high. Up to 30% in some southern states.
Has the criteria changed for being considered over weight? I am 5'10, 180, tested at 14% body fat and I am considered obese. No consideration that I workout everyday, cycle and run around after kids. BF was taken with the electrostatic dealy not a float tank so I think that was wrong anyway, but I should weigh 155 lbs for my age and height. Basically they are saying that I should lose ALL fat (so my kidneys can shut down) so I get get to 155.
Soooo this said, is the nation really getting fatter or is the bar getting lower?
