It was a slip of the mouse! I meant to vote that processed foods are the main culprits! Too much salt, sugar, fat....

I appreciate your concern about animal products. I wonder though, as people as carnivores have been historically consuming animal products for centuries. The rise in obesity seems timed to current patterns of processed food consumption, fast food that has little value, and portions that could be deemed to be excessive.

If you're trying to eat healthy, perhaps you have heard to stay away from processed foods.

It's not just processed "foods" that are causative of this folks, it's also the GM, Big Pharma synthesized drugs, an addiction to electronic goods like iphones, PCs, ipods, ipads, poisoned waters, hypnogogic control of your lives from external sources, Social Sites like Facebook that own you and your personal IDs, sleep disruptions due to poor sleep habits, or the needs of the Corporate State that run counter to your own health concerns, et al.

personally I am trying to avoid sugars and simple starches as they convert faster to fats, and to avoid those I've had to stop eating ready meals and processed foods, so it says it all doesn't it? though a quick breakfast is now almost impossible-as is fast food eating out as well so it's good for me as well anyway, but I still struggle with my weight.

It also has alot to do with Metabolism.. some people can eat anything and never become obese. Then there are people who Metabolism is slow, so they cant digest the food correctly. Please understand Not all americans are becoming obese just as not all americans are vegetarians. some people has too eat meat because their blood type requires it.

I think it's the amount of all foods that causes obesity. Cut down the amount.
