Sean Preuss Notes That U.S. Obesity is NOT Increasing Any More

Details at his blog.

“The subjectivity of CDC data leads to misreporting. People may misreport due to estimating instead of actually measuring, lie because they are uncomfortable with their weight, overstate their height (which leads to incorrect body mass index calculations), etc. In exercise studies, it’s well-known amongst researchers that people generally overestimate the amount of physical activity that they participate in. In general, we are not perfect when it comes to estimating.”
