A massive reason for weight gain is people eating too much, simple as. For example, in a lot of restaurants food portions have doubled and sometimes tripled over the last 20 years so it’s no wonder this attitude is seeping into our normal everyday eating habits.
Losing weight is a simple equation: calories in vs. calories out. Eat more calories than you burn, and you gain weight. Eat fewer calories than you burn and you lose weight.
