eating habits are 50% of the problem the other 50% is lack of physical exertion. americans drive or ride everywhere, this may be because our country is so vast. it also may be because americans don't feel comfortable walking. meaning they think they look weird or funny, self-conscience...ect
Well not everyone is fat because of food. I had a 8mm tumur on my pitiutary and nearly died from it. I weny from 145 lbs to 390 lbs in 8 months. People always awesome its over eating. I was very athelitic and the tumur was fast growing. So hopefully ya'll think before you speak cause that persom male or female tbat may have a severe medical issue
OK NOW HOLD UP, everyone needs to stop blaming McDonalds, Wendy's, Burger King, etc. Yes these places do serve things high in fat and cholesterol, salt, etc. BUT it is up to the CONSUMER to monitor their own eating habits, these company aren't to blame for ppl becoming overweight or otherwise, they are not shoveling the food down people's mouths with guns pointed to their heads! The people themselves have no self control, watch these people when they goto the grocery store look at the products they buy, what u think they buy fat free and other such diet foods? NO! also do you think the portions of the foods they eat while not dinning out are a portion for a single serve? Agian no! Now I'm not saying that there aren't some people out there who do try to eat more healthy, no there are. It all depends on their will to over come their situation to who will succed. So agian don't put blame on company's the fault lies with the ones with no self control

It's the food they buy. I'm an American and I eat very healthy. I find mc ds too greasy and unappetizing so I choose not to eat there. I am also very athletic and I love veggies! And apples :) people just need to stop stereotyping Americans as being fat. Only like 1/3 of us are anyways. America is made up of immigrants. that's why we have r own form of English. we are a mixture of all cultures, therefore we have a variety of food choices but some people just make bad food choices
If there were no immigrants in USA imagine how fat everyone would be because the only reason there still skinny is because of the food they bring from theyre cultures that is not as fattening as burgers and fries
Many factors. A lot of under educated people that are forced into low income jobs. They can't afford good food, forced into cheap fast food that is high in fat. Contributes to diabetes and obesity. No health insurance, so can't afford meds when they need them, so they get worse. Cycle continues.
