As much as this is, without a doubt, an issue where 'individual effort' really does matter, there's a lot of larger factors at work.

Food, in general, tends to have much more calories and less nutrition than fifty or a hundred years ago. This means we can easily exceed our day's calorie needs without getting anywhere enough nutrients. As a result we still feel "hungry", or weak, tired and depessed (all clinical side effects of under-nutrition). Combine this with a century of motorizing every task we can imagine, and this is going to have very predictable effects on people. Some will get fat, some will be undernourished, some will be both and a lucky/privileged few will be neither. Overall, though, we'll be much less healthy.
