Not all American citizens are unhealthy or overweight, but U.S. food sections in other countries suggest otherwise...
Americans have accumulated the reputation of being fat, lazy, and unhealthy. While that is a blanket stereotype – similar to suggesting that all African citizens are poor and dying of malnutrition – there is some truth to the assertion that bad eating habits are rampant in the United States. After all, approximately 1/3 of the population is overweight and 1/3 is obese.
These statistics aren’t an effect of poor genes, but unhealthy dietary and lifestyle habits which contribute to diseases of affluence over time. Until the general populace invests in healthier food options, changes the way they think and adopts healthier lifestyle habits, little will change, and the skyrocketing rates of diabetes, stroke, heart disease, and cancer will continue to increase.
Perhaps a reflection of ‘American’ food choices from around the globe will inspire healthier eating habits. At the very least, the following images (compiled by Bored Panda) will provide insight on the types of snacks and treats many U.S. citizens are fond of.
