Several reports have stated that people in the United States are 77% overweight and obese with the larger percentage in the obese category. Trying to find a reason for this increase in weight is debated between the advances in technology that reduce the amount of work needed for a job versus food portions that are much larger now. Between eating more food and moving less it is inevitable that a person will gain weight. Secretaries in early days had what is called a ‘manual typewriter’ that required some effort to push the keys down. When ‘electric typewriters’ came into the job the secretaries gained 10 pounds. The difference in the pushing down the keys on the typewriter was enough to cause an increase in weight. The television commercial that had the woman looking at her hamburger and exclaiming, “Where’s the beef?” has food companies providing larger hamburgers. Why get a single patty burger when for a few cents more the person can get a double, or triple, meat patty? And now with computer technology the energy required to write a letter or a report is even less.
