Blaming Fast Food Restaurants for Obesity Let’s face it; everyone loves a Whopper every now and then. Yet we are all aware that one too many can bring on dangerous and life-threatening results. Obesity is a growing problem in the United States and more and more children are being affected. But do uneducated families have the right to put the blame on fast food restaurants for their health issues they could have easily prevented? I believe that we are taking it too far by blaming fast food restaurants for obesity and that it is an individual’s responsibility to take the blame.
Being monitored by three physicians; a general practitioner, a cardiologist, and a gastroenterologist, Spurlock kept track of how his health was being harmed each and every day to prove his point that McDonald’s, as well as every fast food restaurant, isn’t the best choice of nutritional food. The review is for the Los Angeles Times to consider publishing as one of its reviews of the film. The Problem: McDonald’s is a revenue making giant that sells fast food meals without much regard to the effects it will have on the health of society. One of the primary reasons people are obese today in the United States is because of fast food consumption. It is after all is the easiest and fastest way to get full when one is in a rush, especially with it being cheap and conveniently available almost at every corner of any major street in Los Angeles and every other city in the world today for that matter.
I know that if you eat too much acidic food than you can get wicked bad heart burn to the point it feels like your heart is on fire. This movie would definitely change how I eat at Mcdonalds!, no more chicken nuggets for me after I saw how they made them. Morgan had started to have very bad chest pains once he started to eat all of the Mcdonalds in one month. It was hard to believe that there were seventeen different Mcdonalds in New York City in that little town. People say that it is Mcdonalds fault for them gaining weight, but what they don’t understand is that they have the choice wether they should eat it or not, or even how much they eat.
However, since the modern evolution of television and the Internet consumers are only becoming more vulnerable to harmful food ads promoting things like fast good and snacks. All thanks to television, obesity rates have sky rocketed within the past thirty years, prompting children to refrain from physical activities and regular exercise; it is simply easier (and seemingly more enjoyable) to stay indoors. Because of this lack of activity, it is quite common for children to be diagnosed with early on conditions such as diabetes. But are the children really to blame? It is a well known fact that advertisers will target their ads towards children.
He hasn't eaten since breakfast and late at night while he waits for Corley to return with money, he orders a meal of peas and vinegar with a bottle of ginger beer for his dinner. He simply doesn't have the money for a proper meal. And, his future looks dismal: it will only get worse. By showing this detail, readers are not as quick to judge Joyce's character, and while we certainly can't like this leech, we can perhaps understand and view him in a sympathetic light. In "Clay," the older unmarried character Maria lives a life of diligent sacrifice for a pittance.
I also drink several Pepsis a day. A day of my diet would be breakfast consists of a sausage, egg and cheese croissant, hash browns, and a Dr. Pepper. Lunch is usually leftovers or pizza and a Pepsi. I normally do not eat dinner. It is a bad habit not to eat dinner but I pay for it in the morning because I’m starving.
I would eat and eat without thinking, at times when I was full I kept eating because I had a low self-esteem (because of my weight problem). I would sit down and play videogames all day, never work out, never watch what I was eating until one day I decided that it was time to put down the food and start breaking down my brick wall (get rid of my fat). I lost over 100 pounds in 9 months, I consumed protein shakes constantly and I ate meals I found online including 2 cups of veggies each day (I got use to it after a while). Life without my snacks (Soda/Pizza/etc.) wasn’t easy to say the least but I was in disgust with how I looked and I was determined to fix it.
If the blame is to be pointed at someone it would have to be the consumer. One reason is that people are not forced to eat these foods. They do not point a gun to our head and demand we eat a half pound burger, a bucket of fries, and a big soda enough to last a whole day. They know it is bad just do not want to make their own food, so they blame companies. Another reason is we have a choice on what we eat on a daily bases.
With more help we can limit the number of teenagers that remain obese until theiran adult. One of the big reasons teenage obesity is common is that teens have poor eating habits. These habits can change but there has to be motivation. Teens need someone or a group of people to show them they care. When a teenager eats a McDonald’s double cheeseburger, large fries, and has a soft drink with it they are consuming up to 1131 calories where the average teen only needs between 1800 and 2100 calories per day.
Also the convenience McDonald, everyone is eating out more than cooking at home, than all these traditional foods will decrease, plus the health of everyone will also go down, it can cause people to get diabetes and heart disease which cause a lot of problem for families due to the low income for most of the families, if people were busy and they want to have something easy and fast, it doesn’t have to be McDonald which doesn’t provide healthy foods, they can always goes to the convenience store to get a sandwiches, salads, and many other healthy foods instead of eating those junk foods. The other reason is, company like McDonald is talking away the business of those private shop are not able to success which cause them to close down, because the country are funding those big company so that it can open up its store around the world, and became
