The pictures I compare in my mind are BART and any of the JR/Tokyo Metro lines. It is striking when you go to Japan for the first time. Why is obesity such a huge problem in the US? The crowd on BART is disgustingly obese and many look deformed in comparison.

Combination of diet and culture. “Americans” just eat too much and you can’t really shame someone for being fat cause everyone else is fat too. I’ve known a few Japanese who move to America and get fat too and lose their weight when they get back to Japan. People in America drive move, eat way too much and basically think it’s okay to be that way.
