1. I don't have this stats: who are the "fat" people in America? Race, gender, social class, etc etc etc...
2. I notice that my weight tend to go up a lot when I eat out frequently or eat other fast food such as instant noodle, craft dinner. Why is that? Who tend to eat out more and why? Who can afford the time and money to cook nutriential and healthy meals three times a day?
1. Race: I'm not going to touch that one.
Women automatically have a higher level of body fat than men, and they are less likely to have a menial labor job, they are also more likely to go on eating binges.
People in the lower income 'class' are more likely to be overweight. They're also more likely to be drunks, and these two are connected.
2. You just need to pick the right things when you eat out. The low carb fad isn't the answer, but staying away from greasy stuff(like fries) is a good start.
Instant noodles have almost nothing for you, plus they're full of the real enemy-saturated fat.
Instant foods and preserved foods you really need to look out for. Learn the ingredients you don't want, and start reading the labels.
