That is the way I see it.
Every time I see something either on tv or in an article that says Americans are more obese because we are sedentary, and eat out and at fast food restaurants and drink lots of sugared drinks I want to pull my hair out.
Its a red herring (whatever the hell that means!).
They are so obviously focusing on the wrong thing, as least in my case. I am more physically active than DH. He has a desk job, spends at least 4 hours a day in front of the tv, sleeps at least 9 to 10 hours between naps and bed. He does go to the gym 5 days a week-he does the typical workout. I garden, do housekeeping, run errands, don't watch more than 2 hours of tv a day, am in bed at least 8 hours (although my quality may not actually give me 8 hours of sleep). I rarely eat out-maybe once a month I eat food I have not prepared myself. I never eat fast food or drink any kind of sugared drinks and haven't for years.
It is enough to make me want to pull my hair out!
