kind of food Americans eat. Many of them like ‘fast food’. These foods (such as hamburgers and ice
cream) often have fattening things in them. Another cause is the way Americans eat. They often eat
little snacks between regular meals. These extra foods add extra fat on the body. A third cause is not
