there's a lot of news about heart attack because of eating too much...so why people continue eating too much if they knew that it is bad for them? what can we do about it? i admit that eating is one of my vibes, but it is because that i'm not a fat person....

People continue to eat unhealthy and in excess for a number of reasons. Many people are raised like that and know no differently. They are lost when it comes to healthy options so they just continue on the path that they learned all their life. There is an overabundance of processed foods available in our supermarkets. It's just so easy to overeat in todays world. There was a day that when you wanted a snack you either picked berries or fruit or you baked a cake, pie, cookies. Now you go to the closest gas station and grab a candy bar. Some people over eat for emotional gratification. Some are lonesome and have very few friends or not enough of the right kind of friends and they take comfort in food. The flavors are palatable so they eat more. The satisfaction on the tastebuds overrides the need to cut back. They know it's not any good but they don't have an acceptable replacement. Again, there is too much processed stuff available and preparation is not needed. Some people don't over eat at all but eat all the wrong stuff. This would be the fast food junkies. They just are so busy and don't even want to think about their meals, so they go to the nearest drive through. They are getting minimal nutrition with maximal calories. This is an epidemic in today's society. It isn't wholy the individuals faults, they have to learn the discipline and a new way of life. I think it should be illegal to make this chemical ladden "food" and distribute it to the public.

also wanted to add. Just because you aren't overweight doesn't mean you are healthy. If you overindulge now you will suffer some how in the future. As a teen I lived on Mountain Dew soda and Butterfinger candy bars. I weighed 90 lbs and never gained. I now struggle with weight issues because I'm sure I totally messed up my metabolism in those younger years. It has taken me 2 years of healthy eating to get at a healthy weight again and remain there. You really shouldn't judge obese people especially when you eat just like them. You are just lucky to have the metabolism that can uphold the abuse at this time. Nobody is excused for abusing their body with bad nutrition, obese or not.

Eating too much is really bad, just as anything else abused is bad. I think the only thing good about eating too much is the satisfaction and pleasure one person gets, specially when he loves to eat. And because of this pleasure, it can ease stress and sadness of the person.

If you eat lots of food,you most likely buy them first.So to a certain degree,you have stimulated economic growth.

the only good thing about eating too much is the self satisfaction one gets from eating the delicious good food.
