As we know, America is at least 1/3 overweight, but the main question is “why?” The reason why America is obese is because of the ignorance and lack of responsibility of consumers. Many people in America do not know what a nutrient, calorie, or carbohydrate is. The majority of Americans are unaware of the gap between a healthy diet, because nowadays we eat what we want instead of what we need.Many people eat when they are upset or nervous. Others eat when they are excited or happy, and others celebrate by eating. Some people fill up at parties and gatherings or just eat whenever they feel. Also, we semi-binge eat because we eat until we feel full. Did you know that it takes 20 minutes for your stomach to tell your brain it is full? This causes people to eat without knowing they are full, and they end up getting seconds and thirds trying to satisfy their already filled tummies.Yes I must admit part of America’s obese problem is due to the actions of government and markets. I do not know how the big companies do it, but they have literally made mind control in their foods.
