I am using "can contribute", and not implying these factors are absolutes.
So I have started with:
--Stagnancy - Lack of movement
--Binge Eating - Consumption of food beyond a reasonable amount
--Food Quality - Consuming a high percentage of food that is nutritionally weak
Recent articles have revealed that many food companies have discovered a "bliss point" which is the right amount of taste that keeps you eating without ever becoming so strong and overpowering that your taste buds tell you to stop. Doritos are an example. Cheetos too. Cheetoos have the added benefit of having "vanishing caloric density" since they melt in your mouth.
1. Lack of meal planning and prep (which leads to increased reliance on fast food or quick meals like Hamburger Helper).
