The Downy Obesity Report predicts by 2035, 80% of African American women will be obese.
This same report says 80% of African American men will be obese in 2079.
African American history is rich in tradition, accomplishments and cuisine dating back to American slavery. Following slavery, African Americans became exceptional at making the most of the food choices they had to work with, and this continues to this day.

Soul food has come a long way — from fried chicken and fish "shacks" to upscale dining establishments. Today, you can enjoy soul food in every African-American community in the nation, especially in cities with large black populations, such as Chicago, New York, New Orleans, Los Angeles and Washington, DC.
It’s true that eating soul food cooked with trans fatty acids along with little to no exercise or activity to work the calories off can contribute to the increasing rates of obesity, hypertension, cardiac/circulatory problems and/or diabetes. It is also widely accepted that the consumption of soul food has contributed toward shortening the lifespan of African Americans.
Soul food does not have to be demonized. The truth: you can eat soul foods like Fried catfish, biscuits and gravy, pork rinds and even pork ribs in a way that reduces the waistline and extends the lifeline. It’s all about the cooking method, how the food is combined and the amount one eats at a single time. Robert Ferguson shows you how small tweaks to how you cook and eat soul food can keep your body in fat burning mode.
