It does look good for women. Obesity may be stabilizing.
I didn't know if we would be able to detect an increase and I was surprised that we did. It's a concern, especially in children.
We've seen an increase in obesity in men and we've seen an increase in overweight in both boys and girls.
About 17 percent of children are overweight and about a third of adults are obese.
I was particularly concerned about seeing the increase in children, because we know that children who are overweight often become obese adults.
It looks like it's leveling off.
It looks like it's leveling off. We'll need more data over the next few years to know for sure, but hopefully we'll see this continue, which would be terrific.
I was surprised that we could see an upward trend in such a short time among overweight children and obese men.
Obviously there has to be some upper limit. I just don't know where it's going to be.
It's during childhood that our patterns often are set. Overweight adolescents often become obese adults.
