Why are American women so fat? - Page 2

post #16 of 23
Fast food is also very cheap in the States and it doesn't help...

Also your portions are very generous compared to European standards.

It's the diet. My experiences have been gained from Yale and Harvard which are not the worst places. Nevertheless, workshop breakfast / lunch was usually doughnuts / pizza / cookies / chips. I loved it, but have I continued for more than those nine months I would have been huge. My question is: How come many American students are not fatter given the style of food being offered?

The CNN thread in CE brought this to my mind when people considered Soledad or whomever she is to be 'hot' (assuming she's the anchor in the video). I'm not implying she's fat, but she has that American plump face that both American men and women have.
It's just so strange how Americans look so American even if they're entirely from another ethnicity genealogically.

So many opinion leaders are fat.  Bring back thin anchors and talk show hosts, and you'll see a difference.  Could you imagine Gwen Ifell hosting a segment on obersity?
