It is not considered vogue to say fat - but it is what it is, I always learned to speak the truth then let the cards fall where they would. So sorry if this rubs you wrong. But 50 years ago when I was growing up in south GA, people were either fat, normal or skinny. I was skinny! SO the problem is there, folks call it what you wish - the problem still exists:
============

Obesity is common, serious and costly

The prevalence of obesity was 39.8% and affected about 93.3 million U.S. adults in 2015-2016.

Obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer, some of the leading causes of preventable death. [Read guidelines]
The estimated annual medical cost of obesity in the U.S. was $147 billion in 2008 U.S. dollars; the medical cost for people who have obesity was $1,429 higher than those of normal weight. [Read paper]

Obesity affects some groups more than others

[Read CDC National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) data brief [PDF-603KB]]

Hispanics (47.0%) and non-Hispanic blacks (46.8%) had the highest age-adjusted prevalence of obesity, followed by non-Hispanic whites (37.9%) and non-Hispanic Asians (12.7%).

The prevalence of obesity was 35.7% among young adults age 20–39 years, 42.8% among middle-aged adults age 40-59 years, and 41.0% among older adults age 60 and over.

Obesity and socioeconomic status

[Read the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR)]

The association between obesity and income or educational level is complex and differs by sex, and race/ethnicity.

Overall, men and women with college degrees had lower obesity prevalence compared with those with less education.
By race/ethnicity, the same obesity and education pattern was seen among non-Hispanic white, non-Hispanic black, and Hispanic women, and also among non-Hispanic white men, although the differences were not all statistically significant.

Although the difference was not statistically significant among non-Hispanic black men, obesity prevalence increased with educational attainment. Among non-Hispanic Asian women and men and Hispanic men, there were no differences in obesity prevalence by education level.

Among men, obesity prevalence was lower in the lowest and highest income groups compared with the middle-income group. This pattern was seen among non-Hispanic white and Hispanic men. Obesity prevalence was higher in the highest income group than in the lowest income group among non-Hispanic black men.
Among women, obesity prevalence was lower in the highest income group than in the middle and lowest income groups.
This pattern was observed among non-Hispanic white, non-Hispanic Asian, and Hispanic women.

Among non-Hispanic black women, there was no difference in obesity prevalence by income.
