Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Friday, April 28, 2021

Tellingly, a recent Pew Research survey found that while 90 percent of Americans consider the country as a whole to be overweight, only 39 percent believe that they’re among the flabby.

Self-perception goes a long way. Even if those easy-fit jeans won’t.

This came to mind for me just minutes ago, when I overheard someone bragging about committing to healthy eating. She proudly proclaimed, “Now, instead of a regular one, I’m only going to eat a small salad!”

And I thought, Yeah, I’m sure it was the supersized portions of leafy greens that were going straight to your ass.
