If obesity is caused by fast food and a sedentary lifestyle, why are so many Mennonites fat?
I do work at a public school where about half the kids are old order Mennonites and compared to the non-Mennonites, they’re absolutely enormous. About 30% of them are overweight or obese

That's because their diet, although not fast food, is still unhealthy.
A grown up person needs limited dairy products and this I guess is one of the reasons. Also the modern techniques of fat reduction (of meat and dairy) are not accessibel to the amish.
