You’re fat

You are fat
According to article, Americans are (surprise surprise) fatter than ever. We all know that. We can go to any local WalMart and see it for ourselves. What I didn’t know, was what’s displayed so clearly in the above graph: the average weight of a U.S. male in 1999-’02 was 191 pounds.

The average weight was 191 pounds! I find that astounding. I’m 6’0″ and weigh between 165-175 depending on whether or not I have my layer of winter fat on yet and whether my thicker coat has grown in. I’m not especially big, or especially small, and thought (up until today) that I was average.

I just went and calculated, in a group of 3-5 people, how much someone would have to weigh if most of the rest of the people weighed the same as me, in order to meet the national average. I will save you from my geekery. Needless to say, it was a lot.

191 pounds on average!
