Why do people eat their way to becoming morbidly obese?
Is it mostly because of an addiction, lack of self control, or depression? Or something like that?

For me, I believe it is down to Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (or Stein–Leventhal syndrome) and medications, but mainly due to the PCOS!!!! PCOS is a total body endocrine disease and can cause men and women to get very heavy amongst other things. I say men as well because men can be affected by it also. It can also cause the person to become insulin resistant as well as develop diabetes type 2 and have cardiovascular disease. My self control is as good as anyone else's, I am not depressed and I don't have an addiction to food!!!! I eat less that most people, I have had many rude people comment that they were surprised I was so large with how little I eat... Some of them have even asked me outright if I binge eat!!!!! (I do not!!!!) There are many reasons for why people are as they are, don't just assume because usually you will be wrong!!!! Now... Where did I put that box of donuts??? *Wink*

TheOrange Evil
There are a lot of reasons why people become obese. Some are depressed, some have natural insulin resistance (part of a larger metabolic disorder) that causes/exacerbates weight gain, some have thyroid issues, some just eat too much, some binge eat like others binge drink, some have delayed leptin signaling, and almost every human being is constantly fighting back the urge to overeat. Most of us, whether for evolutionary reasons or some other cause, desire to eat more than we need for the times when we won't have as much food. Thin people do this, too, and in fact thin people I know usually eat more than the fat people I know, it's just that they have supercharged metabolisms that burn off whatever they eat.

Do not always conclude obesity is from ove rindulging with food. Medications can cause huge weight gains. One young man I know of is on meds for liver problems he was born with and he could not possibly be classified as a heavy eater.He is 15 and weight went up to 280 lbs.! then again, obesity among shool children is becoming a great concern to the medical field -mark it up to junk food on and off the school ground. gov't is now upgrading school lunches to do away with the stuff and getting more healthy foods in but kids are already protesting so they make the choice to be fat and bullied (which doesn't excuse the bulling but does bring it on).

It's because food is good, and eating is addicting, even more so in hard times.
