    I do not recall seeing obese people when I was young, it is so prevalent now and must be an awful feeling, so unnatural for the body.
    Sad.

    Partly because so called "fast food" is too easy to get and not good for you.

    Ooh thats a naughty word these days :p;)

    When the wife is shopping I often stand outside and watch the world go by and its sad to see so many grossly overweight young people with all the potential health issues ahead, diabetes etc.

    I remember my dad in the mid to late 60's had a big belly but as has been said there wasn't many fat people before then.
    Most people are fat because of cheap food of which they eat too much of. Before the 60's food wasn't that cheap as a % of wages. People worked harder, more manual jobs. Less cars more walking etc etc.

    There were not all the fast foods back in the sixties and we were always fed proper food, cheap cuts of meat or home grown fowl with veg mainly from our garden. Could'nt afford to buy much.

    I don't think there were as many morbidly obese people around in the "olden days", but there were certainly plenty of fat ones as I remember. A lot more beer was drunk then leading to beer bellies, and there were lots of them around in the 60's!

    Now I think of it I had a mate, John, who was overweight. He had a huge mother and a tiny father who reminded me of David Kossoff in size and manner. John was often referred to as Fatty and even my mother used the name Tubby to his face, I suppose she thought it was kinder than Fatty. It just seemed the norm then and he didn't seem to mind. When we got to secondary school he started to be called Jock as the nickname never moved school with him and we'd all grown up a bit by 1964.

    Main change over the years seems to be kids play indoors now with computers, tablets, gameboys, ipads, xbox etc (oops and telly)..... you simply do not burn off the same calories as we did playing footie, chase, tag and other outdoor activities. Add into the equation high calorie high sugar food loaded with goodness knows what and BINGO we have FATTIES .... call them what you will .... sweep the problem under the carpet .... it will not go away and whilst we worry about protecting the sensibilities of the young with such names ... remember ... they will not have to suffer too long ... because they will surly die young .... SAD but TRUE many parents will bury their obese fat children because they don't wish to upset or offend them or society ...... WHAT is to become of us ????

    Fat kids are fat because their parents buy in crap food for them to eat.
    Simple.
    If the parents didn't buy it. The kids couldn't eat it.

    What should concern us all is the lobbyists for the food and drink manufacturers, and their influence - what's going on now in food is what used to happen with cigarettes. All proposed changes to food labelling have been withdrawn / diluted such is the food companies influence.

    The problems this will cause to the NHS in future years will make the current crisis a tea party.
