Americans have become heavier and thicker in the 21st century, with the numbers on the scale going up for men and women of all ages, according to a new federal report released Thursday.

Waistlines have balloons, said the National Center for Health Statistics. In general, women’s waist grew more than 2 inches, from 36.3 in 1999-2000 to 38.6 inches 2015-16. In comparison, men’s middle hands increased only over an inch, from 36.3 to 38.6 inches in the same period.

Dana Duffie in Orlando learned the first hand. She had comforted her food because she was little and then wound up with Type II diabetes after her daughter developed cancer in the 1990s. After her daughter died at 16 in 2002, tension became an even bigger problem. She hopes to talk if it will encourage her to deal with it.

“My dad was an alcoholic and, as an adult, I had a light bulb when I realized that I had learned some unhealthy things from looking at him: I hid empty good-sized suitcases or empty small Debbie boxes or even the cover of the second part that would be tomorrow’s lunch, everyone went under the second rubbish in the garbage can after everyone else went to bed. “says Duffie” That’s what I got when I’m today, which is insulin-dependent. “

The report was based on data collected through the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, which examined weight, height, waist size and body mass index of approximately 45,000 Americans 20 years and older.

Dr. Shailendra Patel at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine studies endocrinology and diabetes. The nation is getting heavier, and we need better diets and exercise regimes. “That’s what your grandmother would have said to you, and hearing from a professor is now no less important,” said Dr. Shailendra Patel, chairman of the division of endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine . “You need a varied diet, a balanced diet, with smaller portions. Your plate should look colorful, and you must work at least three times a week. “

Christine Rufkahr of St. Louis is just trying to make her own version of it, in a transition she describes as going from a “junk food vegan diet to a whole food plant -based diet. “This diet has no meat, eggs or dairy but also eliminates most processed foods, added sugars or sweeteners and fats, including olive oil.

Rufkahr believes that many, as herself,” self-medications “for their mental health that would not happen “if people had access to effective treatment.”

The food news is particularly cruel for women.

Roland Whitsell, 80, lost weight in the past decade by eating more protein and training more, including backpacking.

A study of the Journal of the American Heart Association, women who carry more weight around their middle had a 10% to 20% greater risk of heart attack than women who were heavier over all . This weight was measured by waist circumference, waist-to-hip ratio or waist-to-height ratio. The study included approximately 500,000 people (55 percent of them women) aged 40 to 69 in the United Kingdom. The researchers took body measurements of the participants and then followed who had a heart attack during the next seven years.

The analysis showed that compared to body index (BMI) – a weight-to-weight calculation – a waist to hip ratio was 18 percent stronger than the heart rate forecast in women compared with 19 percent stronger in men.

Roland Whitsell, a former trade law professor in Gallatin, Tenn., Says that overweight demanded him over the years that he would win when he experienced depression but would not lose it when he was not depressed. He says he is 5 “and weighed 233 pounds when he retired 10 years ago at the age of 70. He says he has finally lost 20 pounds by increasing both his protein intake and his exercise, especially through backpacking, which he took a few years after his retirement.

He also hopes that he should walk the Pacific Crest Trail in 2021. His last attempt was short.

“I learn something every time it makes me better on backpacking,” he says. “I get better shape and work to get an easier weight.”

Whitsell has also lost at least half a cent since he came out of the 1956 Army. It is in line with what middle-aged men have lost in height since 1999.

Dr Malti Vij at the University of Cincinnati Health Weight Loss Center in West Ches Ter, Ohio said studies that Thursday’s pressure combined the general bad news about the nation’s weight problems. But “these types of surveys are helpful at least when they divide by race and by age group and gender. They tell us where to focus on our efforts. When we look at data, we find that we need to focus everywhere.” [19659036] If you are interested in joining people who have overcome or struggle with health issues mentioned in this story, join the USA TODAYs “I Survived It” Facebook Support Group.
