In brief: Access and time

The amount of processed food that is readily available has gone up tremendously and has led to its increased consumption.
Moreover, the amount of actual physical activity that we get throughout the day has gone down. Kids don't walk and play as much. They spend more time in front of the tv. Adults have very little time for leisure activities.

In brief: Food allergy

The problem might be the hidden food allergy which creates hunger within few hours of eating creating a hunger due to inflammation of pancreas and creates a vicious cycle of eating things that are allergic.
I grew up in india and when i tested i was allergic to rice - simple elimination and rotation diet normalizes issues. The second problem is adaptation issues causing adrenal exhaustion.
