The Average American Woman Now Weighs 166 Pounds

A few years back, we had spotted some obesity statistics – we spotted this stat today –

“There’s no doubt that Americans are bigger today than they were in the 1960s. But Christopher Ingraham at the Washington Post pulled out some staggering stats to demonstrate exactly how big Americans have become: the average woman today weighs 166.2 pounds — which is almost the exact same amount as the average American man in the early 1960s.

Both sexes have gotten bigger since over the past 50 years. Men are 17.6 percent heavier — which translates into a roughly 30-pound gain. “At 195.5 pounds, put five American guys in a room and you’ve gathered roughly half a ton of manhood,” Ingraham notes. In the same period, women’s weight shot up from 140 pounds to just over 166 pounds — an 18.5 percent increase.”
