These are my personal observations only.
Basically, people that ate at cafes, with full or 1 1/2 portion of rice in a plate are the obese ones.
People that ate half plate of rice are the normal figured ones.
People that ate only quarter rice and lots of vege are the slim ones.
People that brought their own food are the normal to slim figured ones.
There are exceptions...like the contruction workers that ate a hill of rice but still maintains their slim figure, but these are only like 5% of the people that I can see.
Of course, it also depends on other issues such as the salary's date (more people bring their own food at mid of the month), the amount of leftover in their fridge (like yours truly), the restriction of budgetary nature (cafe food too expensive) and others.
Well, basically what I want to say is....most of obesity is caused by our own inability to resist temptations and lack of discipline. We eat large amount of food because we say we are hungry, even though our body only need small amount of food to live. Also, when we saw that the cafe is selling our favourite food, we took a huge portion of it...just cause we like it (also like yours truly).
Anyway, may our lives be more prosperous in this new year and we can eat as much as we want to.
Except for pregnant ladies with diabetes.

The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.

And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
