Let’s smash it down the name, a bit and make it more up lock and private. Take your favorite aunt her Martha to call and ask why is Aunt Martha obese?

The most obvious reply is that we eat too much and work out too little.

Martha certainly has a lot of company. There is ample proof that documents the connection between eating, exercising and obesity.

Optional daily calorie intake for adult men, on normal, about 2,700, for women, about 2,000. A recent survey indicated that the average daily calorie eating for Americans is 4,000. Small wonder, then, that:


Per cent of people in the combined States are plump.

percent of Americans are usually have been considered to be fat if they are more than 20% above their ideal weight

 American Diet IQ seems to be dangerously low. For example, another recent poll showed that more Americans are worried about the fat content of their diets that are concerned about the total number of calories they consume. This line of idea that leads to obesity does not matter what the food is eaten, and play a huge role in over sizing Aunt Martha.

Aunt Martha meticulously can avoid fat, meat or alcohol, but she eats mammoth amounts of other foods. You buy foods that read ‘Fat Free’ label. But flush if that big plate of pasta, or fat-free cake or sweet cereals, consumption regularly may not have a lot of fat, each is loaded with calories. And the calories are not burned through work out turn in – you guessed it fat. And Martha never exercises. also many calories and too little exercise is a deadly combination, in many cases literally so. And yet Aunt Martha complains that she just can not seem to lose weight, even if “eat right The “Aunt Martha’s Mentality is so prevalent that obesity is due to a major health problem in America sometimes seems to defy declaration

Meanwhile, as the calories are accumulated, the amount of exercise Americans is left in the dust. Americans are simply “too the Internet or playing on the computer, they are too busy at work – you know the drill. Incidentally, it should be noted that biking and walking much less the Americans, Europeans do And even if you lose weight, the vast majority of dieters tend to regain the weight they lost within 12 months. It would be much easier to maintain the weight loss if they exercised regularly, three to five times a week for about 30 minutes. But … well, pop another donut with that coffee and worry to exercise tomorrow.

There are other reasons that may factor into the circumference excessive Aunt Martha:

Food subsidy makes it fattening foods such as dairy crop, meat and bread cheaper, while fruits and vegetables are more expensive.

Serve sizes have grown. A petite drink at a movie theater or a small bag of buttered popcorn for that matter these days is the size of what an extra large was when Aunt Martha was a kid of 20 or 30 years ago.

Meals cheap when eating out are high in calories. Fast food under the arches is extremely detrimental and has too many calories.

Finally, in what may be the most derogatory fact of all, public health official in this country, in adding to sound the alarm once a year or so, do not seem to do much about obesity in America. Brood as young Americans are getting fatter these days As one researcher noted, one is doing whatever thing about all these harms.
