A lot of fast food places now deliver, so you don't even need to get off your ass to eat. Reminds you of those fat people in Wall-E, doesn't it?
Some people mentioned that these people will just kill themselves off faster and that is partly true, but consider this. If you reduce your lifespan by a third by eating enough food to feed four people then four people starve in exchange for for a few decades taken off your life. Seems like a statistical loser to me.
