I saw The men Who Made Us Fat a month ago. Of course, only the individual can change his weight, however it's scary to see that our society has made it so easy to become obese.

The part about portion size especially stuck with me. Soda, junkfood and candy was consumed, but it wasn't until the 1970s when obesity levels started drastically rising. This was also at the same time when portion sizes were much much increased. For example, today many drink soda every day and often in quite large quantities, where as in the old days people would only drink soda on Saturday and it was limited to one can. The difference alone between soda portions makes a great impact on the scale.
