Are you heavier or shorter than the average American?
(CNN) -- America is struggling with an obesity epidemic, and a new government report says that the population is only getting heavier. "Mean (or average) weight, waist circumference, and BMI in adults 20 years and older increased between 1999-2000 and 2015-2016," Cynthia Ogden, one of the report's authors and an epidemiologist at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics, wrote in an email.
