Wellness Wednesday

Last week I posted about how, over the last thirty years, Americans have increased their daily caloric intake by 600 calories.  One of my readers, Adrienne, commented that this amounts to a one pound weight gain per week.  Although this seems far-fetched, this article from Bloomberg News about municipal bus manufacturers having to re-think bus design, especially seating size and suspensions, seems to confirm the fact that we Americans are increasing our girth at a startling rate.

I read the headline to a similar article in the LA Times + could not continue with the story.
