Fat Americans Say They Eat Healthy and Exercise Ė Denial By Overweight and Obese People or They Donít Understand Healthy Lifestyle

Fat Americans Say They Eat Healthy and Exercise Ė Denial By Overweight and Obese People or They Donít Understand Healthy Lifestyle


Research indicates that obese Americans believe they are living a healthy lifestyle, according to the Michigan-based health care research firm, Thomson Medstat.  The study involved 11,000 people, of which three-quarters of the respondents said they also do "vigorous" exercise at least three times a week.

The All Headline News Website reports that Thomson Medstat found that 28 percent of obese people admit to taking snacks two or more times a day, which is just a little higher than the 24 percent of people with normal weight. 

There were some unanswered questions with this phone survey.  According to WTVM in Atlanta, Doctor Jeffrey Koplan of Emory University of Atlanta says the survey failed to ask people what and how much they ate. The respondents may not understand what a healthy lifestyle is.   


Dr. David Schutt of Tomson Medstat said "There is, perhaps, some denial going on. Or there is a lack of understanding of what does it mean to be eating healthy, and what is vigorous exercise." 


More than half the people in the United States are overweight.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that nearly two-thirds of the American population is either overweight or heavier, and nearly one-third qualifies as being obese.
