Let’s Move! Or Not: Obesity Reaches All-Time High

Posted by on Mar 27, 2013 at 11:00 am

Sure looks like we’re getting a bang for the buck with Michelle Obama’s vanity project.

American adults are ignoring first lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” campaign and reaching for nachos from their perch on the couch. The proof: A new Centers for Disease Control report reveals that adult obesity has reached an all-time high of 29 percent.

According to just released estimates from the January-September 2012 National Health Interview Survey, obesity among those 20 and old broke through the 29 percent line for the first time. Under Obama, adult obesity has increased a full percentage point.

Moochelle’s demographic hardest hit.

The survey found that adults aged 40-59 were the most obese, at 33.1 percent. Whites women were the least obese, at 26.3 percent. Black women were the most obese, at 41.7 percent.

This obviously calls for another nanny-state program from the tiny tyrant Mike Bloomberg. Meanwhile, childhood obesity rates may be down slightly in some areas, but that pre-dates any efforts by the Obamas.
