Too much food or too few nutrients?

In my opinion, obesity is a state of chronic malnutrition. If we continue to focus on reducing the amount of calories one takes in, we're missing the much bigger picture. It's the nutrient content of the food that matters (and that will regulate hunger/satiety hormones), not the number of calories.
