"It's not hard to determine the reasons why and how Americans are becoming obese," says Eric Aakko, director of the physical activity and nutrition program at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. "But it's difficult to change those reasons. For decades America has been building itself to be reliant on cars. People moved away from cities. And they didn't want their suburban homes nestled next door to commercial buildings. Walking to, well, anywhere became impossible. "Essentially, we engineered activity out of our lives," Aakko says. Add to that the proliferation of inexpensive, high-calorie, processed foods, and you have a recipe for a fat population.

Now, experts say we have to swing back the other direction. We need to decrease our intake of processed foods, a step that involves more than just choosing a salad over a frozen dinner for many people. "Where there are high rates of poverty, there will be high rates of obesity," Aakko says.
