Well, I guess I learned something today! It's no surprise people are gaining weight with all of the temptations out there.

I'll have to come back to learn some more :-D

It would be interesting to know how the average age of Americans changed over these 8 years, and what part of the weight gain is attributable to that.

I think the average age rose; and I also think that a person gains weight as part of the aging process. If you doubt this, look in the mirror then look at your high school yearbook photo. :)
