Reuters
(Reuters Health) - A growing share of overweight and obese Americans are not trying to shed excess pounds, and researchers think it's at least in part because more people see being fat as socially acceptable, if not healthy. Over roughly the past three decades, the proportion of adults who are overweight and obese has surged from 53 percent to 66 percent, researchers report in JAMA. Over that same period, the proportion of heavy adults trying to lose weight dropped from 56 percent to 49 percent. Losing weight is hard, and keeping it off is even harder. This may explain at least some of the waning national interest in weight loss, said senior study author Dr. Jian Zhang, a public health researcher at Georgia Southern University in Statesboro. "It's hard to drop pounds," Zhang said by email. "It's a life-long commitment and painful, and many of us have tried and failed, tried and failed, and finally failed to try anymore." A lot of heavier adults are probably also seeing so many other overweight and obese people that they feel comfortable at their current size and don't feel social pressure to slim down. ...
