I am always reading how 2/3 or America is overweight and 1/3 is obese (or something like that), but I never really notice it that much when I'm hanging out in urban areas. There are definitely chubby people running around, and I'm definitely growing a baby gut of my own, but there are still plenty of healthy people crowding the streets. It is only when I go to Disneyworld do I understand exactly how fat we all are.

I didn't spend much time in the parks but almost every person I saw had a big belly. It was very depressing. I've read Fast Food Nation and I know that we are one of the least healthy countries on the planet, but I just can't understand how we all got so fat. Is it really so difficult to eat mildly healthy food?

This is an epidemic.
