If it’s easy, it probably isn’t worth doing

“But maybe we’re not just consuming more calories because they’re available at such a low cost. Maybe we’re also consuming more calories because each calorie gives us less pleasure.

The message of this article, I think, can be extended to every part of human life. Obesity is easy, not diseasey.
