Is Obesity the New Normal?

A rise in body weight perspective is changing how we see ourselves. Research published by the Economic Inquiry has found that obesity appears to be socially contagious and acceptable.

There are many reasons why overweight and obesity are such problems right now. Research now suggests that we’ve grown more comfortable being overweight and that being overweight has become “normal,” while being of an ideal weight may appear to be “underweight” or unacceptable.

Healthy habits are contagious. While we may not be able to change this perception overnight, we’re working hard to help those who refuse to accept this news live a healthier and happier life.
