Americans are not only living large, they’re getting large. More than 65% are overweight or obese, an increase from 2012 and a staggering rise from just 20 years back. To address this alarming trend, the FDA commissioned a study to track fast food eating habits of participants with GPS devices. If the argument is that stricter zoning laws that limit where fast food restaurants can locate will help the nation slim down, I’d like to see how lawmakers plan to protect us from fine dining establishments like Per Se where a five course tasting menu tops 5000 calories (that’s like eating 4 Big Macs in one sitting). I debated this issue along with congressional candidate Ron Meyer and Fortune Magazine’s Adam Lashinsky.
