5 Shocking Facts About Obesity in America

A new analysis of data on body mass index reveals we’re tipping the scales, and then some.

Staff Writer Liz Dwyer

There’s plenty to celebrate on the healthy eating front: Cereal brands and fast-food joints are dropping artificial colors and flavors, and trans fats have been banned. But while those kinds of changes will likely lead to more nutritious food offerings, given the latest data on America’s obesity problem, the adjustments seem like too little, too late.

At least, that’s how you might feel after reading some of the information culled from a study published Monday in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine. The data compiled by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis reveals just how jaw-dropping the nation’s weight problem has become.

The researchers pulled body mass index data collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from 2007 to 2012 on a representative sample size of more than 15,200 people ages 25 or older. From that they were able to estimate the BMI of more than 188 million Americans.

How out of control is our weight problem?

1. More Americans are obese than overweight.

Lifestyle magazines tend to be full of tips on how to drop five or 10 pounds. But plenty of Americans need to lose a whole lot more than that to have a healthy BMI (between 18.5 and 24.9). According to the researchers, 67.6 million Americans older than age 25 in 2012 had a BMI over 30, which is considered obese. That outpaces the 65.2 million citizens with BMIs between 25 and 29.9, who were considered overweight.
2. Overall, more men than women are too heavy.

Women are often fat shamed in the media and pressured to look like a Victoria’s Secret Angel. But when the researchers measured the number of folks who are either overweight or obese, they found that more guys are struggling with their waistline. The researchers found that nearly 75 percent of men are overweight or obese, compared with 67 percent of women. And thanks to the “dad bod” phenomenon, guys with bellies and love handles are being celebrated.

3. If they’re heavy, women are more likely to be obese than overweight.

Of the ladies who need to drop some pounds, 37 percent are classified as obese and 30 percent are considered overweight.

4. Black Americans are the most obese racial or ethnic group.

Black Lives Matter has become a rallying cry around gun violence and police brutality. But according to the data, it seems the phrase should also be applied to black Americans’ physical health. The researchers found that black Americans are the most obese of all racial and ethnic groups—an astounding 39 percent of black men and 57 percent of black women are obese. Even more sobering: Seventeen percent of black women and 7 percent of black men have a body mass index over 40, which puts them into the “extremely obese” category. This shouldn’t be such a surprise given the connection between poverty rates and obesity. And no wonder just over 13 percent of black folk are diabetic, the second-highest proportion after Native Americans.

5. Latino Americans are struggling with the scale too.

The nation’s Latino population is soaring—and many of those individuals are likely to be heavy, particularly if they are Mexican American. According to the researchers, 43 percent of Mexican American women and 38 percent of Mexican American men are obese. (Interestingly enough, residents of Mexico, which is home to one of the heaviest populations on the planet, are also the most confident about their bodies.)

So, Why Should You Care? With sky-high BMI rates such as these, America is well positioned to be the home of the free and the land of folks with type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and cancer. Our health care costs have already played a role in recent presidential elections, and the expense of treating the obesity-related illnesses of millions of U.S. citizens could suck future state and federal budgets dry.

“There are many things we can do to interrupt this worrisome and costly trend, and the benefits go well beyond what’s obvious to the eye,” Graham A. Colditz, one of the study’s authors, said in a statement. “Some cancers, for example, can be prevented by eating a healthy diet, exercising and keeping weight in check. We need to do what we can to change behaviors of current and future generations to reverse this preventable societal burden.”

Perhaps these stats will be a wake-up call that eating less and moving more has to be a national priority.

Obesity Rates & Trends Overview

Obesity Rates Remain High

Adults

Obesity Rates and Trends Overview
  • More than a third of adults (34.9 percent) were obese as of 2011 to 2012.1 More than two-thirds of adults were overweight or obese (68.6 percent).2
  • Nearly 40 percent of middle-aged adults, ages 40 to 59, were obese (39.5 percent), which was more than younger adults, ages 20 to 39 (30.3 percent) or older adults, ages 60 and over (35.4 percent).3
  • More than 6 percent of adults were severely obese (body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher).
  • More women than men, ages 20 and over, have higher rates of obesity and extreme obesity (36.1 percent and 8.3 percent versus 33.5 percent and 4.4 percent).4
  • Obesity rates were highest among Black (47.8 percent) adults, followed by Latino (42.5 percent) and White (32.6 percent) adults and lowest among Asian American (10.8 perfect) adults.5

Children

  • Approximately 17 percent of children and teenagers (ages 2 to 19) were obese from 2011 to 2012, and 31.8 percent were either overweight or obese.6
  • More than one-in-12 children (8.4 percent) are obese in early childhood (2- to 5-year-olds).
  • By ages 12 to 19, 20.5 percent of children and adolescents were obese.
  • More than 2 percent of young children were severely obese, 5 percent of 6-to-11-year-olds were severely obese and 6.5 percent of 12- to 19-year olds were severely obese.7
  • Racial and ethnic inequities persist among children also; 22.5 percent of Latino children and 20.2 percent of Black children are obese, compared to 14.1 percent of non-Latino White and 6.8 percent of Asian-American children.

Stabilizing — At a High Rate

Obesity Rates and Trends Overview

Adults

  • Over the past 35 years, obesity rates have more than doubled. From 2005 to 2006 to 2011 to 2012, rates remained the same.8 The average American is more than 24 pounds heavier today than in 1960.9

Children

  • Childhood obesity rates have more than tripled since 1980.10 The overall rates have remained the same for the past 10 years.11

Some cohorts stable, some rising

  • While rates have remained stable among girls, regardless of race or ethnicity, rates have continued to increase among men and boys and Black and Mexican American women.12,13,14,15

Age Differences

Adults

  • Among obese adults (ages 20+), female obesity rates (36.5 percent) are higher than male obesity rates (33.1 perfect). This is also seen among adults that are severely and morbidly obese.16
  • Adults ages 40 to 59 (39.5 percent) have higher obesity than adults ages 20 to 39 (30.3 percent) and ages 60+ (35.4 percent). This is also true among those who are severely and morbidly obese, where those between ages 40 to 59 have higher rates than those between ages 20 to 39 and ages 60+.

Children

  • Overall boys and girls ages 2 to 19 have similar obesity rates (16.7 percent versus 17.2 percent). However preschool (ages 2 to 5) boys have a higher obesity rate (9.5 percent) than preschool girls (7.2 percent). The reverse is true among ages 6 to 11 where girls’ obesity rates more than double to 17.9 percent and the rates among boys increase to 16.4 percent.17
  • Indian/Native Alaskan low-income preschool children (ages 2 to 4) have the highest obesity rates — at 21.1 percent. Overall rates among low-income preschoolers remain high at 14.7 percent, with Latinos at 18.7 percent, Whites at 12.7 percent, Blacks at 11.8 percent, and Asian/ Pacific Islanders at 11.6 percent.18
  • Among children between ages 6 to 11, Latino (26.1 percent) and Black (23.8 percent) obesity rates are higher than the White (13.1 percent) rate. These same increased rates are seen among Latino and non-Latino black teenagers ages 12 to 19 (2011 to 2012).19
