Why Overweight Men Underestimate Their Girth

Has obesity become the norm? That is the question posed in a recent PsyPost study. They examined the phenomena where overweight or obese men are viewed as being in a healthy weight range.

The obesity epidemic is a catastrophe. Today about 75 percent of U.S. men and 67 percent of U.S. women are either overweight or obese. Bodyweight is not the only important indicator but the fact that the average U.S. woman now weighs as much as the average U.S. man weighed in the 1960s is extremely alarming. Men weigh on average 30 pounds more than they did in the 1960s. The skyrocketing childhood obesity rate suggests that the problem will get worse unless healthy lifestyle choices are more widely embraced.

Following my nutrition plan is an excellent starting point. The first step is to jettison all processed foods from your diet. The convenience and perceived value they provide is entirely illusory. Instead, consume exclusively nourishing whole foods and plenty of healthy fats.

Intermittent fasting is another dietary strategy that can benefit most people. What you eat matters but when you eat is also important. Intermittent fasting helps reset your body to burn fat for fuel. It can be accomplished by scheduling all of your meals in a narrow window of time.

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is one of the best ways to get in shape. Compelling research shows that the ideal form of exercise is short bursts of high intensity exercise. It has the added benefit of taking less time out of your busy schedule. Even the most time crunched individuals can fit it in their schedules.
