The cause of obesity in America is very easy to pinpoint. As a non-American who has been to the US a number of times, I can say that the food serving in the US is simply enormous! One serving there is equivalent to my three meals! That is just too much calories taken to the body in one eating. If Americans can only eat less than usual, then obesity will surely go down dramatically. Of course, try to eat real foods during meal times and not just fast foods all the time.
I'm just curious if the reason to obesity in the US is the large food portions because yes they are large compared to other countries, what's the reason for the obesity in Europe, UK, Australia and yes even Japan?edit on 18-12-2010 by Chai_An because: (no reason given)

That's another thing i have noticed, society has become so fat that people who are a normal weight for their height are referred to as skinny, by others and themselves....which i thought would describe people who are underweight..strange.edit on 18-12-2010 by Solomons because: (no reason given)

Some of the excuses that have been put up here are pathetic. I am sorry fatties but the truth is, the ONLY way you got fat was by eating too much for your own personal metabolism.
It is disgusting you can lie to yourself, lay blame on others for selling you junk food, and basically not take responsibility for something everybody knows you are in perfect control of. Even worse when you make up some fake medical condition to account for you getting fat. 1 in 10,000 have a medical / gland condition that causes weight gain, so chances are you are not one of them ( if you really are you are excused ).
Making excuses means you will never try to help yourself so it is not a good sign.
What do you think that means ? Or are you on here only paying lip service to that motto as well.
