I think it can be one or the other, or both, or a medical condition (not related to genetics) or simple lack of understanding about how bad the standard American diet actually is. Obesity is epidemic for more than just a single reason, although I do think that the American diet with it's huge portions, highly processed foods, and HFCS in so many of them is probably the biggest culprit.
