How many Adults in America are overweight ?

by TOREY RAY / January 14, 2010 9:06 AM PST

I just read the stats and i still don't believe it!


"An assessment by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has found the obesity rate among Americans to be leveling off or even slowing down. But experts warn against premature celebration, as the country?s overweight/obesity level still sits at an unhealthy 68 percent of adults."

68% and it has gone down!

I'd say I see about 85% or more and most of them have diabetes. I hope they get their numbers right soon.
