The trend of weight gain has gotten worse.
And as the average American continues to eat more than they ever have before, more and more Americans are becoming obese, and a new study finds that the increase in obesity may be slowing down.
The new report, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, looked at data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, which covers more than 200 million Americans.
Researchers found that the number of Americans who were obese or overweight last year was at its lowest point in more than a decade, at the end of 2015.
In contrast, in 2014, the year before the survey began, Americans were at the highest point in decades, with a total of 1.7 million Americans over age 35.
“In recent years, obesity has become more prevalent, more common, and more dangerous than ever,” said study author Dr. Sarah Schulz, of the University of Alabama, Birmingham.
“As we’ve seen in recent years with smoking, heart disease, diabetes, and many other serious health issues, the number and severity of obesity-related diseases continues to rise.”
The study also found that more than 1 in 10 American adults are overweight or obese, which is more than any other country on Earth.
That number is almost twice the number found in Britain, where more than one in 10 people are overweight.
Schulz said that the United States is not far off the pace of the rest of the world, and she thinks that it will take years before the obesity epidemic reaches the United Kingdom.
“The U.S. is now at the top of the list for the obesity crisis.
We’re probably about halfway there.
I’m not optimistic,” Schulz told The Huffington Post.
The report comes at a time when Americans are increasingly finding themselves in the throes of a weight-gain epidemic, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
According to the latest estimates, obesity will reach its highest level in 40 years, rising by nearly 20 percent in the U.K. and nearly 20% in the United states by 2025.
As the obesity rate has continued to increase in the past decade, the CDC has issued guidelines to help people keep their weight under control.
But as the obesity problem in the country has grown worse, people have taken matters into their own hands.
“We are seeing the use of apps and other technologies like GPS tracking and Fitbit devices to track people in their own homes and track their movements and eat habits,” Schultz said.
“This has become a way for people to stay connected with their neighbors and get a sense of who they are.”
Some Americans are even using their smartphones to track their weight.
In a survey from Gallup last year, more than half of Americans admitted to using their smartphone to track the amount of food they ate.
The survey also found some Americans are getting creative in the hope of losing weight.
“I think it’s great to see that people are trying to change their behavior,” Schutz said.
“I think that we should all be mindful of the fact that there is a problem and that there are tools that can help us get back into shape,” said Schulz.
“The data show that the trends are not going away, but we’re moving in the right direction.”
In fact, Schulz believes that there could be a silver lining to the obesity pandemic.
She said that if the trend continues, people may find themselves more motivated to get active, and that could have a positive impact on the health of their communities.
“Our society has been trying to make us overweight and obese for quite some time,” she said.
