PEPSICO president and chief financial officer Indra K. Nooyi is riled. Outside her third-floor office, snow is piling up around the company's famed sculpture garden in Purchase, New York.

Lay's potato chips and Doritos, she insists, aren't responsible for turning people into “fat slobs.” Their uncontrollable habits – and their increasingly sedentary lives – do. “The problem is the couch, not the can,” she says. “That's the problem. All right?”
