Here is the scenario. . . You pull up to the drive thru, see the juicy images of cheeseburgers,
crunchy golden fries and thirst quenching pop and bam your mouth starts watering, the smell
of fast food is like a comforting hug and you cannot wait to take that first bite!
Americans love affair with fast food began in 1921 with the birth of Mc Donald's . . . Fast
forward to the present, and we have children and adults who are stricken with diabetes and
obesity. 1 in 4 Americans consumer eat fast food everyday and there is nothing wrong with
that, in fact just like you I love fast food too.
In todays busy World we cannot blame the fast food Industry for your lack of will power.
Just because you live a hectic life and need to get a quick meal on the way to your son's soccer
practice does not mean that you do not have choices. I researched all of the fast food restaurants
(see chart) and ALL of these fast food chains have easy to access nutritional panels that empower
you the customer to make educated choices when ordering, there are a myriad of healthy options
to choose from. We all know that apples are healthier than french fries and water is healthier than
soda. Americans need to stop pointing the finger at fast food and take a look in the mirror. It is
okay to eat fast food just make healthier options at the drive thru and if you want to indulge great
but don't over indulge everyday. My philosophy is everything in moderation.
So are fast food restaurants villans or heros or is the owness on the American consumer?
"Weight" in on with your opinion?
