Why Americans are fat

burger and fries

Americans are fat because we eat way too many calories. The amount we need is actually much smaller than what most people realize. A female who doesn’t exercise may only need 1600 calories a day. A male that’s not physically active requires 1800-2000 calories each day. Yet, the average American actually consumes 3770 calories each and every day (1). Whoa! No wonder 2 out of every 3 people is seriously overweight.
