Here is a fantastic infographic, depicting how different facets of our lives (both internal and external) contribute to energy storage, and ultimately, body weight.  This is an excellent way to visualize the complexity of the disease of obesity and underscores the importance of recognizing it as so much more than just an issue of willpower.

Infographic provided by The Obesity Society, presented at Obesity Week 2015.
