There are lots of metabolic reasons to rule out (organ disease like heart, liver, kidneys), insufficiency (thyroid, adrenal, kidney), more.

Yes if large amounts:
A diet high in sugars and starches is probably the greatest contributor to obesity. The book wheat belly makes the case that wheat is a major factor. See http://thehealingproject.
