Are we fat because we eat too much crap or just eat too much?

Hi, My name is JuniorBallloon and I'm obese. I'm 5' 11 and 3/4 inches tall and I weigh 225. Technically...obese. I have read recently that America is fat because we don't cook at home and we live in food deserts surrounded by fast food. I cook at home every night. I don't eat fast food. I have the occassional cookie. And I'm obese. I'm obese becasue I have access to as much food as I want and I eat too much and don't excercise as much as I should. I think whether it's good food or bad food America is fat because of abundance. Morgan Spurlock of,, didn't get fat because he ate Mickey D's, he got fat because he ate 3000 calories a day.

I am all for people having access to great food and learning to cook at home, but I don't see it as a cure for the obesity problem in America. I'm not saying it might not help, but I read these stories and I don't see the connection. Am I missing something?
