Alright, after reading (yet another) article about how incredibly
overweight and obese America is becoming, I started thinking
about how many people that I see on a daily basis are in fact

I'm looking for some individuals who will help me with this

All you need to do is list how many different people you say
each day for three days that are overweight/obese, make a list
for each day, and note how many of the same inidividuals you
see each day.

I will be starting tomorrow, so is hould have my results by

I appreciate anyones help who wants to take part in this survey.

Ok, so the results are a bit late, sorry, time got the best of me.

In three days observation, I noticed a concernable amount of
overwieght and/or obese individuals, not as manyu as other
parts of the nation, since I live just outside the healthiest city
in the country.

I carried out my study during three days, the location I chose
to do the study was my school classes.

The following are the amounts observed:

Overwieght: 17 individuals.
Obese: 8 individuals.

I really cannot stand obese people. Sometimes I'm thankful that I have such an extremely uncontrollable food phobia. Some times I'll go days just consuming organic figs, rubbish collected on the side of my house, and banana quick. If I could actually control my fear of food, I'd probably be gigantcally overweight, spending hours on end at Carls Jr., licking ham hocks dry, engorging myself with pickle juice, and devouring olives by the handful! Oh, I just cannot stand fat the fatest people!

I work for an outsourcing company, and with a job that involves nothing but sitting all day, there are a considerable amount of overweight/obese people here...

I'd have to say at least:

25-35% of the 800-900 employee are overweight
2-3% are obese.
