What do you think about the problem of obesity in America? For me, I think it is so messed up how people keep eating and eating and eating without any form of exercise. I really don't like it when obese people say they want to diet, but then go to McDonalds and order a Large BigMac meal and a diet coke because they are on a diet . . .It just aggravates me how they feel like victims, when in fact they are the ones hurting themselves.

Ugh, so many Americans are fat. I just started noticing, like everyone is fat.

The problem is that it's a trend, we've eaten like that for so long that it's not going to change anytime soon.

Big Macs are good, lol just some people need to lay off. If they have to have McDonalds every meal they should at least get something with less than a million calories.

Oh well, just glad it's not me.

It has been natural for humans to eat what they can find. But now that there's mcdonalds everywhere some americans are obese!!! Thank god they have fewer McDonalds here in Canada, or else we would be big too.

Its not only that people go to McDonalds every week (and I hate it when people blame it on fast food companys as it is not always their fault [I am not defending them])

It's.. People eat, eat.. eat... and never go out for a jog,bike or walk, they just sit around watching tv/console/pc.

I dont live in USA, but I know, I hve seen it on TV.

You can eat fast food, as long as you work it off.

Their idea of a diet is shameful.

There are many American obese. I am not American, but I have read the statistics.

Obesity is bad. Eating and eating without any way of burning calories does nothing. Many people who are obese also tend to be lazy or sedentary. People can only blame themselves for gaining weight due to overeating, unless of course, one suffers from a medical condition.

And now kids are watching their parents eat and getting fat, so in return, they follow their parent's eating habits, therefore causing another generation of obese people.
