Questions About Obesity
Diets, exercise, and weight loss is such a huge topic in America. Obesity research has been performed for over 100 years, but we currently have higher obesity rates than ever. So, the pressing question is:
If obesity is such an undesirable condition and a consequence of overeating and being sedentary, why do people overeat and remain sedentary?
Do they not care or can't control their appetites? Are they just not aware of the changes (i.e. It is happening so gradually)? Do they trully make changes, but it doesn't make a difference? Or, is the theory of overeating and inactivity inherently flawed?
