An interesting article but I'm not too sure about the statement "a majority of people consumes about 600 calories per day". If this means in the form of snack foods then this is pretty high, depending on age/gender etc a total intake of around 1800 calories a day, derived from a balanced diet, would seem more reasonable

I had to read that sentence twice myself. I believe its 600 calories in snack food alone.

Yes, we have all been nagged to death about overeating as the reason for weight gain. We need to hear more about genetics, pollution, antibiotics, environmental estrogens and stress. Really this just reinforces the stereotypes that fat people overeat. Many thin people eat just as much or more and are genetically programmed to stay thin!

Snacking'll kill a diet. And the majority don't consume '600 calories per day' in total - that's a starvation diet calorie count. Just the author's typo, I assume.
