    Because most mainstream fast foods do NOT originated from California. You actually think Chicago style or New York style pizza was invented in California? Or KFC which stands for KENTUCKY Fried Chicken originated in California? 

    the very first fast food eatery in the US was the Automat in New York which began operating in 1902 and it was a largely a vending machine-like service.

    Being thin and healthy has very little to do with the origin of fast foods.  It is to do with the choices people make and the environment that they live in.  Just because fast food exists or is available, does not mean you must eat it.  And California is not the only place in the US that has thin people nor does it mean there are no fat people in California.

    You are making the statement that eating fast food makes one fat and unhealthy.  That is not true.

    A longer growing season makes fresh fruits and vegetables easier to obtain for more of the year and warm weather for most of the year promotes a more-active and healthier exercise regimen. A long coastline doesn't hurt.  People have a lot more things to do.

    Can you spell Kentucky Fried Chicken? And:

    >According to the company, Burger King was started in 1954 by James W. McLamore and David Edgerton in Miami. Other sources, however, trace Burger King back to Insta-Burger King, a venture founded in Jacksonville, Florida, by Keith Kramer and Matthew Burns in 1953.

    Mainstream fast food did not originate in California, but things like fish tacos, Chop Suey and California style pizza did. And fast food is not inheretently Bad for you, just in moderation.

    A healthy diet does not need to completely eliminate fast food.  No one is going to get fat eating it once in a while, as long as the rest of their food is healthy.
