and then there is the mental illness portion of the obesity issue

ADD, ADHD, OCD, and obesity: what doe these have in common?

Is there a "mental illness" component to obesity? or is it just that anyone who cannot eat a restrictive diet, remain hungry for life is "not normal" hence becomes over weight.

It is much more like the excess and crap in the modern diet causes us to be hungry all the time. Abundance makes food always available. We get fat due to both, and it is all natural. Remove either one, and the problem goes away.

ADD, ADHD, OCD may contribute, as depression, boredom, and other emotions, but is this just one more reason the medical profession can use to describe there inability to provide workable free living solution to the desire to eat obesity problem?   so sharma, now that you screen and find ADD, it is not obesity that you cannot treat, it is ADD that is the issue, so you are not a failure, it is the psychiatrists fault for not being able to treat ADD? And the patients for not thinking right, and CBT has a bit of the solution? Yah sure.
