Is Fast Food Okay Sometimes?
To hear the fast food industry tell it, you can eat McDonalds every day and be perfectly healthy. I disagree with that, but you certainly can eat fast food occasionally and still lose weight. I love burgers and fries.
Healthday.com today reported that, “frequent fast food consumption cannot be part of a healthful diet, despite claims to the contrary by the food industry,” according to Dr. David Ludwig, director of the obesity program at Children’s Hospital Boston and senior author of a recent study
In response the National Restaurant Association said it could not respond to the study without knowing more details, and then submitted a statement saying, “Dietary experts agree that all foods can be part of a healthy diet — foods that are readily available in varying portion sizes on all types of restaurant menus.” Well what else would they say?
The No. 1 vegetable kids eat are french fries, with ketchup (tomato candy) the close second. That’s not good.
