Why are Americans so fat...

American's have 500 more calories then the recommended amount a day which means they need to do more excises the recommended amount but no only 1/3 adults get the recommended amount of excise  , soft drink in the 1970 only made up 4% of calories in a day compared to now that are up to 11% of everybody's calories intake.

The average kid spends 7.5 hour watching or playing on a box daily. Which means there sitting on there bums and not doing any excise 1 in every 5 house have a park near by.
