America is Huge!

Obesity facts from the US:

From 1999–2000 through 2017–2018, the prevalence of obesity increased from 30.5% to 42.4%, and the prevalence of severe obesity increased from 4.7% to 9.2%.

Non-Hispanic blacks (49.6%) had the highest age-adjusted prevalence of obesity, followed by Hispanics (44.8%), non-Hispanic whites (42.2%) and non-Hispanic Asians (17.4%).

Note that being non-obese doesn't necessarily mean that your body weight is healthy. Looking at the full data for adults in the US, we find that 72% are overweight.

It's staggering how bad policy, ignorance, and sugar-in-everything has made the US the fattest country in the world. There is hope for individuals. The fat can melt off with some serious willpower:
