“‘Fat’ may be the new normal in America,” declares WalletHub in its latest report. More than three-quarters of American adults are now overweight or obese, according to a study by JAMA Internal Medicine, cited by WalletHub.
Moreover, that same study showed that for the first time ever, there are more obese people than overweight people in the country. And on top of that, in 2014, nearly 83 million Americans were “completely inactive, the highest number reported since 2007,” according to data cited by WalletHub. For what it’s worth, that’s 26% of the total population doing virtually zero physical activity.
