No. My logic says that if you're obese, it's probably because you're eating too much. And yes..Every man is an island (biologically and/or metaphorically speaking).
Over the last 50 years the potato has lost:
100% of its Vitamin A
57% of its Vitamin C and iron.
28% of its Calcium.
50% of its riboflavin
18% of its thiamine

It's like this. Your body tells you that you are hungry. So, you go eat something. It fills your stomach, but a while later you are hungry again. Why? Because the food you ate had little or no nutritional value. So you eat again when you should not, putting on extra weight. Exercising won't stop the cycle, only speed it up. You actually run the risk of becoming fatter quicker, as well as a more rapid onset of other health condidtions.
And this is no longer just about fast-food. Take the humble potato for example. The Irish staple for avoiding starvation.
This, too, is interesting. Why is this?
