A "weighty" issue on both sides of "The Pond."

A report out of Britain says there has been a nearly 12%decline of "greasy spoon" restaurants with their fat-filled English breakfasts.

The survey says Britons are opting for more healthy eating at American-style coffee bars and gourmet sandwich shops.

Meanwhile, in the U.S., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says more than 30% of the Americans are obese … an eight percent increase over data collected from 1988 through 1994.
