Americans are getting fatter: poll

The New York Post reports:
Gobble, gobble, gobble. Forget about the Thanksgiving feast. Potbellied and big-butted Americans stuff themselves silly all year round, a survey has found. American men are weighing in at an average of 196 pounds — 16 pounds more than in 1990, a Gallup Poll has found. The average weight for women jumped 14 pounds to 156 pounds over the same period. The truth is, fat is in and thin is, well, mostly fantasy.
