Answer One 

Mead’s chapter on obesity concludes that previously, people ate food based on their nutritional needs while presently; they only eat what they desire (Counihan 26). I agree with this conclusion because researchers in food and nutrition have progressively demonstrated that the obesity rates have been on the increase over the years. It appears that food companies have come up with ways of making dietary imbalance with a good nutrition that have made the current generation become addicted to food. Many people in the current generation have been unable to balance their nutritional intakes, a factor that has contributed to increased obesity rates.
