Blame Snackwells Chocolate Devils Food Cookies...

In order to get rid of unhealthy fat from foods manufacturers took out the fat from many processed foods. This left the food tasting more like cardboard without the gloriously tasty fat. So they added more of the two best things we like to eat: sugar and salt.
Well, if you eat alot of salt you get constriction problems in your arteries and veins and extra sugar punches the hell out of your pancreas, liver, and is quickly deposited into fat. Like alcohol beverages, sugar bloats and destroys the body. I heard this all explained by UCSF En Dr Lustig UCSF
Great Discussion Here

This is very misleading. Even if the portion sizes were that much smaller (no reference given, so who knows), it doesn't mean people ate any less. They just ordered more food.

The obesity problems in our society have much less to do with portion sizes than they with do our increasing sedentary lifestyles and the the frequency that we eat unhealthy food. Eating fast food is far more common now than it was in the 50s.
