Does this country make me look fat?

Americans are obsessed with weight. Sometimes it's vanity, but sometimes it's because so many of us really are overweight. While the country as a whole is a lot fatter than it/we used to be, finding an effective way to lose weight and keep it off has been a perennial issue for a long time.

That's unconfirmed, but, according to a report in the Annals of Internal Medicine, before he became president, Taft sought medical help to lose weight in order to relieve his heartburn, indigestion and fatigue. Some of the advice he got was good, and some was ineffective.
