Statistics show that an incredible 65.2 percent of the U.S. population is considered to be overweight or obese according to the Centers for Disease Control.” (Freudenrich, 1) The definition of obese is based on the admittedly faulty BMI, or Body Mass Index, which describes the percentage of your body consisting of fat based on your height and weight. While this does miscalculate obesity in the case of tall muscular individuals or short individuals who have high fat but manage to register a low BMI, the numbers of defined obese have been rising at shocking rates....   [tags: Obesity in America]
