More than one third of Americans consider themselves overweight.

But if you ask the federal government, the number is a lot higher than that.

According to data from the last five years collected during Gallup’s annual Health and Healthcare poll, 41-percent of Americans think they’re overweight.

That percentage is up from 36-percent from the previous five-year period.

However, federal health statistics show nearly 75-percent of Americans are either overweight or obese.

The same Gallup data found 53% of Americans  consider their weight to be about right.
