besity has been called an epidemic in America, and you cannot visit a newsstand without seeing magazines with articles devoted to how to lose weight. Yet, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that a shocking 42% of our country's population will be obese by 2030.
At the same time, there has been a movement to develop more plus-size models while the government cracks down on sodas and Happy Meals. What is wrong with this picture?
The following 10 articles offer insights into the problems with obesity, and the steps one can take to lose weight without government intervention.
While some Americans are living on the banks of Denial (it's not just a river), clamoring for more plus-size models and happily fooled by vanity sizing, a new report released today from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that a shocking 42% of our country's population will be obese by 2030.
Today vanity sizing, rumors about Marilyn Monroe's dress size and the demand for more plus-sized models are exacerbating the problem with obesity in America while they attempt to deflect attention from the real problem: Americans are getting fatter every year.
When I was growing up, there were no clothes sized 0, much less 00. Something happened over the past few decades to cause the need for smaller sizes. The problem arose because manufacturers have been making women's clothes sizes fit increasingly larger bodies--a practice known as vanity sizing.
A strange mythology has sprung up over Marilyn Monroe's dress size. For decades I heard Marilyn Monroe was a size 12 back in the 1950s. However, in more recent years, Elizabeth Hurley (2000) and Roseanne Barr (1996) have claimed Monroe was a size 16. Can this be true?
There has been a move in recent years to "normalize" obesity. This comes from the camp of those who ignore their body mass index, who are fooled by vanity sizing, who believe Marilyn Monroe would be a size 12 (or larger) today, and who want to see more plus-size models.
Many people talk weight loss and how they just can't seem to lose any weight, but a look at their lifestyle and habits usually reveals the problem. They may talk about losing weight, but they are not taking weight loss seriously. Here are 7 signs that you may not be taking weight loss or your health seriously.
Dieting is almost a pastime with many people. Books, TV shows, and videos are devoted to teaching us how to eat. Do we really need a book or TV show to tell us how to eat sensibly or how to lose weight?
Plus-size model Crystal Renn first made a name for herself as a 95-lb. 16-year-old model, but became anorexic in the process. She told her story in her 2009 biography, "Hungry: A Young Model's Story of Appetite, Ambition, and the Ultimate Embrace of Curves."
Losing weight is one of the top New Year's resolutions for men and women alike, because not only is fat is a problem that can't be hidden, it is a very unhealthy problem.
We've all see the video clips of some fat behind or huge protruding belly waddle across our television screens as the news does its occasional health reports on obesity, but there is a strong move to "normalize" obesity today, led by those who want to see more plus-sized models. (These are for the most part the same people who would have others believe Marilyn Monroe would be a size 12 or 16 today.)
