U.S. Obesity Rates Leveling Off, But Still High
Date:1/13/2010

he study wasn't designed to find out the cause of such trends, only to spot them, Ogden said.

Anirban Basu, a health economist at the University of Chicago, said that many factors may contribute to the overall stabilization of obesity rates. "It is possible that the rise in calorie intake that we saw during the late 90s and early 2000s has flattened out," he said. "Better awareness does play a role, given the billions of dollars spent on obesity and diabetes awareness and also diet regimens."

"There are a lot of transitions happening at the individual level across all BMI categories. It's important to understand those transitions and, even if overall obesity proportions have stabilized, to think about targeted intervention," Basu added.
