Hold the Pie (Not!)

How much do Americans weigh? More than they did twenty years ago, according to a Gallup survey. The average American woman says she weighs 160 pounds, up from a self-reported weight of 142 pounds in 1991. The average American man says he weighs 196 pounds, up from 180 pounds twenty years earlier. Both men and women weigh much more than what they say is their ideal, 138 pounds for women and 181 pounds for men.
