27.7%: Percentage of Obese Americans At Its Highest Level

Obesity hits all time high as leftists encourage unhealthy lifestyle

The incidence of American obesity hit its highest point ever last year, 27.7% of the population, according to Gallup’s report on Obesity Rankings released on Wednesday.

“Nationally, the incidence of obesity is at its highest level, rising to 27.7% in 2014, up from 27.1% in 2013 and significantly above the 25.5% recorded in 2008,” reported the survey.

The survey is the third in Gallup’s annual Well-Being Index, though Gallup has been tracking obesity rates since 2008.

The figure was calculated by asking 2.2 million Americans to self-report their height and weight, from which Gallup calculated their Body Mass Index (BMI). Individuals with a BMI of 30 or higher are classified as obese.

1212-It's more about our lack of physical activity than anything else. Kids used to play outside all day long. Now? Video games and computer BS fills their days. Remember how the typical neighborhood was 20-30 years ago? Nowadays, I barely ever see anybody outside.

Sodas and lack of pride in oneself are the biggest culprit. If you are packing on the pounds, then change in eating habits and physical activity are needed. Why are Americans so stupid?
