SUMMARY: By 2030, 48.9% of adults in the United States will be obese and 24.2% will be severely obese.

Leading this category are millennials who are the most obese generation in the history of our country.

“Obesity is getting worse in every state and especially concerning is severe obesity, which used to be pretty rare and now will be the most common category for a lot of states and subgroups across the country,” said Zachary Ward, a Ph.D. candidate at the Harvard T.H.
