Since the late 1990’s, there has been a dramatic increase in obesity in Americans, regardless ofage, according to information collected and
analyzed by the National Center for HealthStatistics. Almost 9 million (15%) children between the ages of 6 and 19 are overweight, and this number is still growing according to information gathered between
1999 and 2000 (triple the number of 1980). The information has also shown that another 15% of children between the ages of 6 and 19 are at risk of becoming overweight also. Obesity is defined as having an excessive accumulation of body fat which will result in the person’s body being about 20% heavier than their ideal body weight. So those people whose weight is above what is considered their ideal range, are defined as being overweight. Obesity is a common eating disorder that is associated with teens.
