In an ambitious 478-page report, the IOM refutes the idea that obesity is largely the result of a lack of willpower on the part of individuals. Instead, it embraces policy proposals that have met with stiff resistance from the food industry and lawmakers, arguing that multiple strategies will be needed to make the U.S. environment less "obesogenic."

Is it all our own faults ? Advertising ? The food industry ?

I am on thyroid medication and before I went on it, my thyroid was out of control. I would drop 4-5lbs in one night and gain back 7 the next day. It was crazy.
