Abstract In Chapters 3 and 4 we sketched the current, tension-ridden, constellation around obesity. We saw how three discourses, connected to specific practices and artefacts, competed for hegemony in defining the problem, its causes, its solutions and the main-actors. In this way, each discourse allotted (primary) responsibility for solving the problem to other parties: the obese individual, the state or the physician, as we showed in the previous chapter.
