Modern man/women sit far more at desk jobs than populations 20+ years ago. In all reality many should be eating less than 1000 calories a day not 2500-3000. That is unless of course they are active, but that seems to be the exception these days.
Closer to 1500 Calories for a 150 Lb man who are least walks the stairs and a couple blocks here and there.

But, yeah, almost no one should be eating 3,000 calories unless they are an athlete or roofer or whatever.

yeah agreed.

Plus it is about portion control. You can pretty much eat anything you like, just eat small portion

I made a pot of clam pasta yesterday and everybody just loved it. I used white wine, olive oil and fresh tomato, Herbes de Provence. One woman claimed that I needed to add some half and half, and cheese, nope, you don't need any of that to create something delicious. People are used to what they eat, maybe this is the problem.

The US obesity rate is the main reason our health costs are so high.

I'm guessing most on the left will say the answer is more taxes and not personal responsibility.

I'm fairly sedentary and eat 800-1000 calories a day, but I also only eat one big meal a day. Much more energy throughout the day.

Yes, the pasta and olive oil have plenty of carbs, fat and calories on their own. You don't need to turn it onto Fettucine Alfredo. Check the calorie counts of some of those Olive Garden meals. Even the salads. Yikes!

We have become a culture where everything has to taste oh so great all the time, meaning high fat, sodium and calories. Nothing wrong with eating things that don't knock your sox off with deliciousness every time.

Here’s a thought:

Lose weight and maybe, just maybe, people won’t call you “fat”.

I am quite thin, and disagree with him.
