  • There are a lot of factors that go into it but the bottom line is that we have created a society where it is beneficial to be a fat lazy piece of shit. Physical education and proper nutrition have been all but completely removed from public education. There are large quantities of cheap food on almost every corner that can be in your mouth in minutes without even getting out of the car. We have become overly sensitive and way too god damn politically correct to even be allowed to criticize poor life choices. And modern medicine has insured that many things what would have previously killed a person for living like that won't really have that much of an impact.

  • I would say junk food. I don't exercise but I always eat home made food and I'm not fat

  • Lack of exercise and lack of self control are the only causes.

    Junk food is just an easy blame scapegoat.

    Lots of people eat junk food, it doesn't make you fat if you have it in moderation and exercise.

    Don't ruin things for people who can actually regulate their consumption of comfort foods.
