Why are people fat?

Is it just socially acceptable now?
Genetics?
Lack of self control?
Mass abundance of food?
Do we just live in a sad society where people look to food as an escape?

Either due to health complications/illnesses or Laziness
I would know because I have both, and I'm fat.
Lack of self control and having an abundance of food go hand in hand.

Also, due to the fact that people are becoming more sedentary than before due to internet/tv/etc plus the fact that we are eating more calorie packed food would also contribute to it.

There's lots of reasons. A lot of people turn to food as an escape in the same way people turn to alcohol or drugs. That's why shaming people who are fat only makes it worse

Because food is cheap and people tend to do a lot less manual work in modern days.

Primarily it's a simple abundance of food in the west.

could also be something to do with physical fitness being no longer important because any kind of medicine is available to cure common disease.

Multitude of reasons. Depression for some.

An enormous woman sat in front of me on the bus yesterday. She was carrying a bag with luck 5 packets of donuts. I was judging her so hard. But then I saw her face, so dull and lifeless, her hair was dishevelled. It just screamed depression to me. Very upsetting.

It just reminds you, it's so easy to judge but you don't know everyones story.
