Well, clearly it is difficult because around 65% of the UK population are overweight or obese, that implies that the majority of people are having very real issues, not just a few fatties who can’t control themselves, the majority are having very real issues. Most people are fat. 65% here and rising, 70% in the US. Consider this; One of the biggest problems we have is overweight and obese children, the schools contain bad food, the streets they walk home on are tiled with cheap takeaways and fast food outlets (especially in cities), Fast food advertising is engineered to attract children, schools have reduced the amount of PE classes over the last couple of decades. The parents are also overweight and have poor nutritional education. Still want to lay the blame at the door of the individual and blame self control? The government are allowing fast food companies (McDonald’s Burger King, kfc, dominos, papa johns, Starbucks, Greggs, etc) to fill our high streets left right and centre, without any environmental or health considerations, despite the explosion in metabolic disease and weight problems. The government is allowing supermarkets to fill their shelves with food that mostly serves no useful purpose whatsoever other than to taste good, whilst being either high in calories or high in added sugar (70%+ of products on shelves) Still want to lay the blame at the door of the individual and blame self control? When you fill the environment with toxic unhealthy choices - don’t expect anything less than serious widespread health problems, personal responsibility doesn’t stand a chance when you put average people into a consumption oriented society, geared to provide pleasure for money.
