A federal analysis undertaken by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that 4 out of 10 American adults suffer from obesity while 1 out of 10 are seriously obese.

The CDC's study of 2017-1018 examined the height and weight of over 5,000 American adults and found the country's obesity levels are increasing day by day. The study showed 42 per cent of U.S. residents falling below the threshold of obesity and over 9 per cent were showed to be extremely obese. According to the survey, from the reported numbers of 2015-2016, the number of obese individuals rose by 2 per cent and was extremely obese by 8 per cent.

Rising obesity levels are becoming a major issue for both adults and children in the United States. In reality, the CDC survey of 2015–2016 showed an 18.5 percent rate of obesity for children and adolescents in the U.S. and a extreme obese rate of 6 per cent.
