When the U.S. diet gets worse, the experts say
CINCINNATI — When the United States diet gets better, the doctors say, so does the nation’s obesity problem.
A report released Monday by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Dietetic Association warns that as the country’s obesity rate rises, the number of dietitians will rise in addition.
The report, published in Pediatrics, said that the obesity rate in the United Sates will reach nearly 5.5 million by 2050, an increase of more than 12 percent from 2015.
The number of people with chronic conditions such as diabetes and heart disease will rise, with the number nearly double those in the 1990s, when the rate was still around 2.2 million.
The number of doctors will jump from 8,000 to 20,000 by the year 2030, and the number will double to about 10,000 in 2050.
The report also noted that the nation is facing a “very real” public health crisis due to rising obesity rates, which it said could be worsened by the implementation of the federal Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
While the U,S.
has a healthy diet and a low obesity rate, it also has a serious obesity problem, the report said.
The obesity rate has risen to more than 28 percent in some parts of the country, and that has led to an increase in chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke and cancer.
It has led some doctors to question the validity of the USDA’s new BMI guidelines for the federal food stamp program.
“We know that this new BMI standard is very much based on a single, single, one-size-fits-all approach,” said Dr. Nancy Krawczyk, the executive director of the American College of Physicians, who spoke at the news conference.
“We don’t know the specific weight that we need to eat.
We don’t have enough data to determine what percentage of calories we need.””
That’s why the report has to be revised,” she said.
The BMI guidelines, published this week by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, do not specify the exact percentage of fat to consume.
Instead, they recommend that overweight people be advised to consume less than 30 percent of calories as “good fats.”
The report warned that obesity could be a “crisis” in the U., and that the USDA guidelines could not be “taught to everyone.”
It also warned that the increased numbers of dieticians will only worsen the problem, as there is little research on how to prevent obesity, how to treat it and how to monitor it.
It’s unclear whether the CDC guidelines will be adopted by states, which have largely resisted the federal government’s new guidelines.
A spokesman for the U and the Department of Agriculture said the agency is working on a new set of guidelines for states.
The federal government has not yet made a recommendation on the guidelines, which are part of the Affordable Care and Affordable Housing Act, or ACA.
The new guidelines include recommendations for dietitics to eat fewer calories and exercise less, including on their lunch breaks.
