I see a lot of articles saying things like 'X leads to weight gain.' or 'X makes you fat.' and maybe it's true that X is the first step in a process that ends up at weight gain, but leaving out middle steps -eg overeating, feeling hungry- I feel is misleading. It encourages people to take less responsibility for their own actions or feel as though they have no control over them. Really we should be hearing, 'X leads people to overeat.' or 'X makes people feel hungry.'
