Americans Heavier Than Ever

Study shows that Americans are eating too many of the wrong kinds of calories.

A study from the World Health Organization says 66 percent of the US adult population is overweight. The findings state that on average, adults in the US are eating upwards of 3,500 calories each day, even though 2,000 calories is enough for an active adult. Researchers examined the types of food consumed and found that overall food choice also has a significant impact on health. On average, in Brazil, where diets are heavier in grains, adults still consume 3,000 calories per day, but only 40 percent of its population is overweight.
