    Americans are a stressed out people. Stress = eat food high in sugar/fat/carbs = get a feel good serotonin/dopamine/endorphin boost to the brain = feel better.

    I read that the British are just as fat as us, however.

    Some european nations are more fat then they are used to be but I am talking about people that are extremely fat by US standards. That kind of people you will not find in Europe. At least not in places where I have been.

    I live in America, and I tend to avoid places with extremely fat people too!

    We have so much in common!

    Hitler ate fat people?
    Nah, my cultural reference was Billy Connelly, not the Holocaust (that would be tasteless).

    I've heard that food prices and are higher and that portions are smaller in Europe-if true, that would probably have a lot to do with it.

    I suspect the fat thing has a whole lot to do with the prevalence of sugar and high-fructose corn syrup in prepared foods in the US, in addition to the sheer abundance of cheap tasty carbohydrates.

    We are the ones who invented the Double-Stuf Oreo, you know... and we sell them in the one-pound packet.

    Does anyone think it has to do with density of population? In Europe, the tendency seems to go toward urban society, and has a higher population density (I think). In the U.S., the urban areas of higher population density have government and some societal aspects more like Europe. Still, people in the big cities eat Big Macs and stuff, since our rural and urban cultures mesh together and create a "status quo" that lasts a while, and has impact on the minds of everyone as to the way things "should be".

    I think the main divide is rural vs. urban, and other differences are residual from past generations and whatever their dominant ideas were, but those slowly change, too.
    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.
