How does the US compare to other countries in attempts to fight obesity? Do they do more or less is it better or worse? While doing research on obesity I found many courses and seminars geared toward fitness professionals with the topic of obesity. This is no so in the US and if it is I am unaware of it. Let me know your thoughts.
Great answers. To avoid being redundant, I think the fact there is an alarming rate of adult obesity and a totally unacceptable rate of childhood obesity in the U.S. speaks for itself. Schools are a poor antagonist, food product advertising and promotion promote the obesity problem, and “recreational” pursuits frequently focus on sedentary non-physical activity. I laud those computer and TV products that at least encourage movement. The rampant availability of super high calories foods and dependence on motorized transport certainly put the U.S. at or near the top of countries with obesity related concerns.
