However, it is shown that the salads can contain even more calories than the hamburgers, if the customer adds liberal amounts of cheese and dressing onto them prior to consumption. It is claimed by McDonald’s that these changes had nothing to do with the film. A recent review about the relationship between fast food and obesity (CITE) concludes that “Findings from observational studies as yet are unable to demonstrate a causal link between fast food consumption and weight gain or obesity”. However, with the amount of technology that we now use in today’s society we are more likely to see more advertisements and other triggers that will make us want to crave more fast food which will in turn increase our consumption of McDonald’s and other fast
David starts by teasing these overweight individuals that are bring a lawsuit against McDonalds, but then later admits that he used to be overweight as a child and was able to change his life around. He made a point to show health concerns with being obese and eating fast food regularly, such as type two diabetes which has risen about twenty-five percent since 1994. This raise in diabetes also requires much funding for the United States to spend to try to find a cure. David explains how there is very few alternatives for the youth of America because those health alternatives are more expensive and harder to find. False advertising is also another unpleasant practice that fast food companies use to lure in costumers.
Positions Livoria to take advantage of the growing population and addresses Paul’s concerns, but fails to address the current need to generating a net income of $1.1 million by 2015 (appendix 2) * Industry trend indicates 70% of restaurants in Dawkins are franchise.

Each fast food corporation has special procedures to keep their paying costumers happy by giving them exactly what they asked for, fast food.
Chick-Fil-A vs. McDonalds It is well known, that McDonalds is the number one restaurant in the entire world due to the number of stores and gross income. In terms of this argument, Chick-Fil-A cannot compete with Mickey D’s but a lot of people will argue that it is the better restaurant of the two for certain reasons. As of myself, I pick McDonald’s over Chick-Fil-A because I go to McDonalds more than I go to Chick-Fil-A and I believe it is better overall. Both franchises have their pros and cons, so I will compare them to inform you on the differences of the two and why McDonalds is the better choice. The three main points I will compare the restaurants’ by is the fan base, the choices, the taste, and the prices.

Bittman clearly states that the cost of fast foods aren’t as cheap as we have all tricked ourselves into thinking and that the obvious choice should be home cooked meals. As well as using hard evidence, Bittman also manages to convince his readers of his credibility because of his background and knowledge of food. Appearing on NBC’s The Today Show, NPR’s All Things Considered and the author of three books relating to food, Bittman is multifaceted (Beyond Print 1). Bittman makes it clear a few times during the article that he likes to make home cooked meals and
Over time, the fast food industry has increasingly manipulated consumers and corrupted the stability of the nation, and although the convenience and affordability of fast food has made it widely popular, the disadvantages noticeably exceed the benefits.
