Accepting, or not accepting, being Overweight

A National Consumer League survey of nearly 2000 adults has found that many Americans who are, by definition, overweight do not acknowledge this fact. Based on BMI, or body mass index, far fewer survey participants classified themselves as being overweight than would actually be the case.

According to Linda Golodner (apparently President of the National Consumer League), consumers would find it beneficial to develop a more realistic picture of their physical condition.

No doubt, this is, to some extent, true. Tackling weight loss as a personal objective can only come after first acknowleging that a problem exists. One has to wonder, in fact, how many individuals with hypertension and type II diabetes are not receiving proper diet and needed treatment due to insufficient insight into issues regarding personal health and nutrition.
