I'd like you to do something for me: Dust off an old photo album that contains those treasured photos of your parents when they were young. Flip through those pages, paying particular attention to any photos of large family gatherings. Notice anything? (Aside from the retro fashions, that is.) If you can't get your hands on an old family album, just do a Google search for group photos from the 1960s or even earlier. Anything jump out at you? If you look around today, whether while walking down the street or watching one of the many reality shows on TV, I guarantee that you'll see a much different picture. If you take public transit or live in a big city, you have plenty of opportunities to spot what I'm talking about: Most people nowadays are so much heavier than people were 50 years ago! They are easily 20 to 30 £ds heavier, on average. It's not an exaggeration, no matter how much I wish it was. The proof is literally frozen in time for everyone to see. Faded photographs aside, figures back up this observation. In the 1960s, the average American man between the ages of 40 and 45 weighed 169 £ds. By the year 2000, that average weight was 196 £ds!1 According to 2012 stats from the Journal of the American Medical Association, 16.9 percent of 2- to 19-year-olds and 34.9 percent of the 78.6 million American adults who were 20 years or older were obese.2 What's scary is that those numbers didn't even include another 35 percent or so of adults who didn't qualify as obese but were still overweight and also at risk of weight-related problems like heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer. And this isn't just happening in North America, either. On a recent trip to Barbados, I decided to take a tour of the island. (It took a whopping 2 hours, as it's less than half the size of New York City.) During the excursion, the tour guide mentioned that even though this tiny Caribbean island was sheltered from the weight-gain epidemic for most of its existence, everything changed about 20 years ago. He revealed weight- gain numbers almost identical to the ones I mentioned above. What's going on? What changed? What's happening in our modern world that's making people around the globe--even on distant islands--so much heavier? Y
