Platkin’s ‘Fat Clock’ Demonstrates Need For Serious Weight Loss

Filed under: Health — @ August 22, 2006

We all know the obesity problem in America has gotten way out of control, but now Charles “Diet Detective” Platkin has come up with a unique idea for visually demonstrating just how bad it has gotten with his “Fat Clock.”

Beginning on August 15, 2006, the “Fat Clock” started ticking upward to show the cumulative weight GAIN that is ongoing right now in the United States.

bq. That’s right, Platkin has decided the time has come to show Americans how much weight they are gaining every tenth of a second on average as an aggregate number and it will literally shock you. Click here and look in the upper right-hand corner of the web page to see the current total of OVER 39 BILLION POUNDS…and steadily rising!
