It may appear as though America is slowly improving its lifestyle choices, considering Michelle Obama’s campaign for a healthier youth and the fact that more Americans than ever are interested in a vegan diet. But ultimately, it looks as though America is still really fat.

According to Business Insider, a study done by JAMA Internal Medicine has found that over three-quarters of American adults are now overweight or obese, with over 83 million people living “completely inactive” lifestyles—the highest number since 2007. Additionally, for the first time in history, the number of obese people outweighs the number of those who are overweight.
