@mollymuggins You said "a very small amount of overweight are so because of over eating." thus you are saying a small percentage of people overate and well 85% is not a small percentage.
Anyways a majority of obese people are obese simply because they eat foods high in calories, plus they drink sodas and juices instead of water almost every single day.
A 24oz bottle of soda(not saying which) can have 300calories ... a so called "Big Breakfast" or "quarter lb'er with cheese" are both over 500 calories. If you simply eat those foods you`d have 1500 calories by the end of the day, but most people also drink numerous 24oz soda`s in a day along with their meals. So you can easily have 2400 calories + by the end of the day (but most people also eat snacks and other junk during the day as well)
You don`t really need more than 1800-2000 calorie`s if you aren`t that active, which most fat people aren`t.

fyi i never said that the 85% never overate. that was your interpritation of it. speaks more about you and your egoic mind than it does me and my lack of proof of the statistic here. i take no affense to what you have said , you are ill informed and sensative and run strictly on the egoic side. thats ok. one day you will find a way to rise above that, i hope.
