Two new health reports just out this week forecasting that over 40% of adults could be considered ‘obese’ by the year 2030.  Current figures indicate that 34 percent of adults in theU.S.currently are obese, and six percent are severely obese.  BTW: Severe obesity generally is defined as being about 100 pounds overweight. One study concludes the source of our ever expanding waistline is our stationary environment, rather than a lack of individual willpower.  RnR
