I have to disagree with the comment about the fact that people are getting enough nutrition based on the fact that they are overweight. Being overweight can be just as much a sign of poor nutrition as it can be of overeating. One reason is that the items that are consumed are low in nutrition while high in sugar, salt, unhealthy fats, and calories. Also, when the body isn't getting enough fuel, it goes into starvation mode, holding onto calories and storing food intake as fat.
