Americans Have Put On 20 Pounds In 20 Years

Just what they needed. Otherwise, how would they fit into their oversized clothes?
American adults now weigh an average of 20 pounds more than they did two decades ago, and their view of what they should ideally weigh has also increased, according to Gallup's annual Health and Healthcare survey, which questioned 532 men and 480 women who come from 50 US states and the District of Columbia (selected using random-digit-dial sampling). 61.6% of American adults today are overweight, but only 39% say they think they are.

The survey, which relied on self reports, reveals that the average weight for an adult American male is 196 pounds, and 160 pounds for a female - nearly 20 pounds more than in 1990.
Kudos, fatsos.
