Default Obesity: Who is to blame?

"But what should have been a public relations triumph for McDonald's quickly
turned sour when it emerged that its salads may contain more fat than its
burgers."

Sounds like another lawyer feeding frenzy...

Yeah, kind of silly. If you are overweight it isn't McDonalds fault or
anyone else's other than your own. Anyone can be thin IMHO. It is hard
work for some for certain.

Not necessarily. How many of us tried all the 'conventional' diets and got
nowhere but fatter in the long term?

Low carb is the only weight loss plan that works for many of us, and if we
believed all the anti-Atkins "your kidneys will fall out" rubbish that's
constantly shoved in our faces we wouldn't even have this option.

I agree that blaming McDonalds or any other fast food outlet is completely
wrong though - that's just people being greedy for money, IMHO.
