Frequency also has an effect on how the body stores vs metabolizes calories. I do wonder if anyone actually knows someone who is obese from simply overeating a truly healthy diet. A healthy diet allows your metabolism to function efficiently, and it's hard to fathom how one could simply overeat to the point of becoming obese on such a diet.
