    Access to a lot of food in this country. If people are more out in the country, they drive more instead of walking or exercising to get around. If you notice usually city people aren't as big as people out in the country areas.

    Americans in the United States, over the last 300 years as a society, all have genetically evolved and share the same DNA gene, which makes them look genetically and ethnically all the same.

    Just like how all Russians, Germans, Italians, Greeks, Indian nationals, aboriginals, Africans, Chinese, Japanese, Filipinos, Argentinians, Arabs, Brazilians, Mongolians, Indonesians, Welsh, Scottish, Irish, English, French, Slavonic's, Norwegians, Australians, Canadians, New Zealander's Pacific Islanders, Jews, etc etc all look genetically and ethnically the same.

    Americans frontier and pioneer ancestors who were mainly gold diggers, railway workers, soldiers at forts, farmers etc. Due to the lack of women coming to the United States Puritan colony's, these pioneers and frontier had children with local Native Americans, Mexicans, Hawaiians, Eskimos or African slaves this is where the original fat gene came from and has evolved within the DNA. That's why United States Americans are the fattest white race on the planet.

    All they have to do is look at food and they get fat, even if they eat like a pigeon. Also why American made or designer clothing is not sold anywhere in the world. Being we don't have their American genetic Endomorph (male) Apple (female) body shapes. Also why they look badly dressed when wearing foreign designer labels, because our designer clothing doesn't suit their genetic body shape.

    Since United States Americans are the least most non globally traveled people on the planet they don't realize the all look ethnically the same and they are very easy to visually spot. Even if they say they are Canadians and have Canadian flags on their travel bags. Also why they always have Canadian, Australian, British or Jewish actors in their US television shows and motion pictures. If they didn't they'd also ethnically look just like Indian nationals do in Bollywood movies.

    The same reason why so many Canadians and Europeans are fat.

    Processed foods.

    It could be humanity's love for fast food or unhealthy products to add Mexico is actually the nation with the most Obese.

    Because we have too much access to food and take too much advantage of it... I'm not like that, though. I'm average weight and on the swim team to stay fit.

    Because they overeat. Lack of physical exercise is also the reason.
