I'm a dual citizen of the US and the UK and have lived extended periods in both countries. If you want the quick answer as to why the UK is not quite as obese as the US look no further than the automobile. When in the UK cars were for trips to the grocery store and long journeys. Other than that we walked everywhere. Even the use of plentiful public transportation required a walk to and from the train station, or from one bus route to the one on another street. The US lifestyle is a much more sedentary one than what I experienced living in the UK. HFCS has nothing to do with it IMO.
