I do not agree with Amanda Lewe's statement that people near or below the poverty line are more likely to be obese. Granted being from a lower economic group can play a role in obesity, but I believe it is simply a matter of putting in the extra effort to search for reasonable deals on produce and cooking healthy meals.

I come from a lower middle class home, but no one in my family suffers from ­obesity. We take the time to look through the deals our grocery store offers, and put in the work to cook healthy meals, rather than resorting to fast food.

To sum it up, it all falls on the individual's drive to put in the extra work to stay healthy, and quite frankly, Americans seem to lack that drive.
