So the CDC surveyed a bunch of people and found that among men, obesity prevalence is generally similar at all income levels. But they did find that black men and Mexican-American men with higher income levels are more likely to become obese.

It’s important to be aware of trends like this so you can better determine workout and eating routines! Remember to consult your physician to see how you can manage your weight and how COVID-19 may impact you.
