Which president is losing weight faster?
The weight loss phenomenon has become a national issue, with many Americans wondering how to stay healthy when they’re not eating, and the latest Gallup survey shows that Americans are concerned about their weight.
The national survey of 1,002 adults was conducted June 13-15.
More than two-thirds of the 1,000 respondents were adults over the age of 50.
It asked about how they feel about their health and about how their weight has changed since they were children.
Only 20 percent of those surveyed said they feel more energetic, which is more than double the percentage of people who say they feel less energetic.
Americans’ concern about their body is especially pronounced among those who said they have a family history of obesity.
Forty-three percent of Americans who have a history of being obese said their health has gotten worse since their kids were born.
Fifty-four percent of obese adults said they’re worried about how much they weigh.
More than a third of adults said that they’re very concerned about weight gain, while a third said that their weight was very or somewhat increasing.
A third of respondents said they were very or partially concerned about how weight loss affects their relationships with their family.
Almost three-quarters of Americans, 74 percent, said they’ve lost weight and are very or fairly satisfied with their body.
Americans were less satisfied with the quality of their appearance than they were with how their health is changing, though the percentage was still quite high.
