Being fat may be a life-long problem

Written by The Sarcasmist on November 10, 2010 - Comments (2)

A new study has revealed that people who are obese while aged 12 to 21 are more likely than normal-weight (or simply overweight, not obese) people to develop severe obesity before they reach their mid-30s.

For women and for ethnic minorities, the likelihood of proceeding from adolescent obesity to adult severe obesity is particularly pronounced. Among women, 51.3% of those who had been obese when they were younger became severely obese adults (for men, the figure was 37.1%). (LA Times)

So let me break this down for you. This study found that if you are fat when you are young, you are more likely to become even fatter, as compared to people who are normal or only slightly fat during their teens and early twenties.

Thanks science!
