Congrats, American once again proved the world that we can accomplish anything. From the good, to the bad, we always strive! According to a new study, the United States is the world leader in obesity. Ouchhhhh.

Researchers found that 25 percent of Americans are overweight or obese compared with 20 percent of British people and slightly more than 10 percent of Germans. Being overweight isn't just an American and British problem. It's a global problem.

Worldwide, obesity has more than doubled since 1980 and being overweight or obese is the fifth-leading cause of death in the world, killing about 2.8 million adults each year.

It's not a proud title we own, but how can we improve it? Doing simple work-outs can make you lose weight, and even simple diet tricks. I've cut out on drinking most soda through-out the week, and I've lost around 8 pounds so far. The trick is discipline.

Do you have any diet tricks?
