Already a problem. I spent a bit altering Uniqlo oxfords in M, and now they barely fit around the chest/shoulders. Not a bad problem to have I guess, most of my shit fits.

Not a fitting analogy. The dog in my avatar is mine. She does not control how much or when she eats. Plus the quality of the food is irrelevant to the obesity epidemic. Yes it leads to other health complications, but really the core of the problem is quantity. I worked with some union electric workers... the bosses were all fat. Any time we went out to eat, the fattest ones would recommend restaurants with the biggest portions. Literally if Americans did nothing but cut their consumption by ~40-50%, the obesity epidemic would start to die out overnight.

Just makes me look better.
This works until you consider healthcare costs. American insurance premiums are out of control partly because we're just disorganized and stupid, but largely because we are overmedicated and addled with "fat"/poor lifestyle choice diseases. It just comes down to people making the right choices.
