The prices are the real problem i think, having a big mac for something like 5 dollars is just ridiculous, cheap as hell
Why does the world have to constantly hear about Americas issues, this topic among many others you country sized teenagers think are important really arent. Ill tell you why... because people with half a brain don't need to be told whats right and wrong over and over again. America the country where people literally sued McDonalds for making them fat. At what point is your country's people going to take responsibility for their own actions. Trying to justify having guns for protection whilst the government has drones/nukes... your petty gun isn't going to help you.
ok what ever you say fast food is good shit just work out to burn on the shit you eat
Some times people are unable to break from that suppression because another diet or exercise is not an option. Examples are food deserts. Areas that are controlled by fast food giants or any dominating food that is next to nothing in nutrition yet is cheap and affordable.
Its easy when you break through the suppression but the habits often still remain. Like not throwing away food, storing foods for longer,
This was pretty well written. I feel like fast food in the USA, is really a big problem. But I think it's mainly because of the ingredients they use and the high calories they contain. The conveince from fast food in the USA is amazing, and the price really does reflect on it.
For the USA, the go to food would be fast food chains like McDonalds, taco bell, etc, but the ingredients they use are questionable(bad choice of words. I'm too tired to have good English rn) and often results in high calories. For many parts of Asia , getting cheap "non fast food" foods are much convient and in expensive. Say for example Japan's wide selection of meals in their conveince stores, or China (and many other Asian countries, and also European) wide selection of street food, that offer fast delivery.(Although some stalls can also be, questionable)
Honestly, idk where I'm going with this reply.
A solution could be having more options for people to choose from. But this would require the people to actually switch, but a cheaper price won't do because of the high labour wages. (Which I guess isn't a problem for many Asian countries now that I think of it. Which is why a lot of thing are cheaper in Asia, cause the cost of living isn't as high)
this actually made me wanna order a big fat double-double combo tbh
Well written thread, don't see those often on HLTV.
Also, wanted to add that this problem is steadily growing outside of the US as well in parts thanks to media in (eastern) european countries still glorifying the US as land of opportunity and thus trying to copy a lot of things and trends that are present in the US, for example, the fast food industry.
I actually calculated myself that it is marginally cheaper for me to actually go to my local fast food place rather than to make the burger myself from store bought ingredients. Only bright side here in Latvia at least is that the majority of fast food places, especially the unhealthy ones like McDonalds, KFC and stuff like that, are located in Riga and the further away you get from the capital city, the better are the fast food places or they try to be more traditional with their menu.
And your point/conclusion/solution is?
ew, I just had five guys for dinner, but I eat fast food once or twice a month so I don't care that much.
it's sad to see all these hardworking americans risking their lives mostly because of the flawed system...
People eat poorly due to lack of education on nutrition / lack of self respect for their body. There is literally no other explanation. You can eat healthy on a budget, foods like rice, oats, frozen veg etc are dirt cheap and nutritionally very good for you, so working two jobs isn't an excuse. Some people argue they don't have time to cook, again just another excuse. If you care about yourself, you'll make time to eat healthy, just like you make time to exercise and keep in shape etc. Fast food really shouldn't be criticised at all. Yes it's not great for you, but it's a well known fact and it's up to people to eat it and people who do eat healthy and eat fast food in moderation because it tastes nice shouldn't have that taken away as a result
I'm not sure if it'sthe governments' business to fix.
Like obviously, get that garbage out of School, teach elementary schoolers how to eat well, but I don't know how we expect to solve these problems for the existing generations.
I think at schools they need to show to kids what happens to your body and health when you eat crap
Edit: idk why I said that theres no simple solution
How did people eat there in the last few months?
Good thread, great info
but you'll always be an amerifat
just be a burger with iq and don’t eat fast food or only eat it rarely
chickfila still really good))
If u work physical job (something like in warehouse) where u have to move a lot not just like sitting in office u can eat whatever u want and not be fat, of course not enough for all this kind of job :) Or even if u work in office just go to the gym and u can eat fast food also, not everyday of course because if u need fast food everyday probably something wrong with you :)
