Alas, the US is not a developed country. The gender gap has grown slightly in recent years to 5.0.

Deaths at younger ages (suicides or accidental) aside, since men's life expectancy at the age of 65 have been levelling up to women's, their wives don't need to worry about long widowhood. In 2016 the difference (at 65) was 2.6 years: https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/hus/hus16.pdf#01

with the drop in life expectancy will the gender gap narrow or widen?

Woman Kicked Off Harry Potter Ride for Being Too Fat Terry Hayne
Schmiedling maintains her ejection from the ride constitutes discrimination. “Exclusion and shame,” she asserts, “are not motivational techniques; they’re forms of bullying. … Exclusion makes me, a logical and educated person, believe that I’m at fault for not fitting into this ride instead of recognizing that rides should accommodate all people’s bodies.”
Furthermore, Schmiedling notes the incident made her realize the Harry Potter saga itself is sizeist. “Upon further investigation, the books and movies have only a few big characters and most of them are antagonistic,” she laments.
Schmiedling also explains her obsession with the supernatural book series, which began in 2017 due to her malaise over politics: “I got deeply sucked in last year. It was the depression and disgust surrounding Donald Trump’s election that sent me into a [Young Adult] fantasy endurance run.”

It's cold today and I've been grazing on my vegan snacks all evening, but the photos made me lose appetite - thank you. My impression is that it's thankfully changing. I've recently had a health check-up and they've measured my height and weight, as usual. My BMI is underweight, but when I told the physician that I intentionally keep my weight low, she showed me a thumb up! Previously some obese cows made negative comments or even implied that I was anorexic, begging for my snide retort (and I'm a generous person in this respect).

The heroes of our times.
I searched for less formal photos of the authors of this study. Don't you think it might be a bit biased?

"In fact, more than 50 human genes including MC4R, FTO, PPAR-g, LEPTR and others have been shown to contribute to obesity and different patients may have a different combination of variants in these genes. Thus, being the genetic factors, an important determinant of obesity does not necessarily imply that we can use these genetic factors to develop personalized treatments or specific molecular diagnostic biomarkers for obesity. Unravelling this complexity may be feasible in the future, particularly if the promises of artificial intelligence to make meaning of big data and therapeutic opportunities provided by genetic engineering technologies are fulfilled."

There's only one hope for the obese: we need to develop an AI as powerful as a human brain to analyse the big fat data and discover all the complex genetic mechanisms and patterns which lead to the causal relation between eating too much and/or moving too little and getting fat. Then science will defeat obesity.

or maybe they could just eat less and move more

I think the problem is much more complicated than that.
