  2. The Weight of the Nation • Weight of the Nation

  3. The Obesity Epidemic • Most important public health problem For the first time in human history, in the year 2000 it was estimated that there were more overweight than underweight people. Source: Mendex, Monteiro, & Popkin 2005

  4. A Nation in Crisis • Our nation stands at a crossroads • The present obesity epidemic threatens progress related to increasing American’s quality and years of healthy life • Result – a decreased ability to compete in the global economy. Source: Surgeon General’s Vision for a Fit and Healthy Nation 2010

  5. The Problem - Obesity • One-third of U.S. adults (33.8%) are obese – 17 million • Approximately 6% with a BMI over 40kg/m2 The prevalence of obesity among adults changed relatively little during the 1960s and 1970s, but it increased sharply over the ensuing decades – from 13.4% in 1980 to 34.4% in 2008.

  6. Sizing up the Obesity Challenge • One in every three children (31.7%) ages two to 19 is overweight or obese. • One-third of all children born in the year 2000 are expected to develop diabetes during their lifetime.

  7. Sizing up the Obesity Challenge • The current generation may even be on track to have a shorter lifespan than their parents Source: White House Task Force on Childhood Obesity, 2010

  8. Obesity more Common Among Certain Racial and Ethnic Groups • Obesity rates are highest among non-Hispanic black girls and Hispanic boys. • Obesity is particularly common among American Indian/Native Alaskan children Source:

  9. Military Readiness • More than a third of all Americans ages 17-24 are unqualified for military service because they are too heavy. • The Army has started to overhaul food choices on bases. Source: White House Task Force on Childhood Obesity, 2010

  10. Firefighters • Half of incoming and current firefighters are overweight, while almost one-third are obese. • More firefighters die of heart attacks while on the job than from any other cause. Source: White House Task Force on Childhood Obesity, 2010

  11. Police Officers • Potential recruits are overweight, and many have trouble passing the initial police academy fitness requirement. Source: White House Task Force on Childhood Obesity, 2010

  12. The Obesity Epidemic • It came quickly, with little fanfare, and was out of control before the nation noticed. Source: Brownell & Horgen, 2004- Food Fight

  41. Adult Obesity Rates and Trends2008- 2010 • Ten years ago, no state had an obesity rate above 24 percent, now 43 states have higher obesity rates than the state that was the highest in 2000. • Adult obesity rates rose in 16 states over the past year. No state decreased. • Twelve states now have obesity rates above 30 percent: Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and West Virginia. • Four years ago, only one state was above 30 percent.

Obesity projections • Keeping Obesity Rates Level Could Save Nearly $550 Billion Over 2 Decades! • Obesity to Rise: 65 Million More Obese Adults in the US and 11 Million More in the UK Expected by 2030! • Study Suggests 86 Percent Of Americans Could Be Overweight Or Obese By 2030!

  47. We can Make a Difference • AAFCS has addressed challenging social and economic issues for over 100years

  48. What can we do? The Obesity Awareness Community and Taking it to the Streets Campaign is calling on all FCS professionals to: • Take part in the recommended level of physical activity each day—at least 30 minutes

  49. Thirty minutes of any type of moderate physical activity

  50. What can we do? Choose healthy foods each day based on the 2012 Dietary Guidelines • 2
