Be yourself- not your idea of what you think somebody else’s idea of yourself should be.
- Henry David Thoreau

Is Fast Food Really that Bad for You?

You know how it is, there’s not enough time to go grocery shopping and fix a meal for the family after working all day, so you hit the drive-thru on the way home. Some people blame the fast food culture for many of today’s ills of society, but is that really fair? There are more healthy choices to be sure, but is it really that bad?

Well, there is one documentary claiming that eating McDonald’s for a month cause many health problems and a lot of weight gain – BUT that person also dramatically changed his lifestyle in other ways such as completely stopping his regular exercise routine. Also, he always super-sized his meal when the worker at McDonald’s asked if he wanted to. While another person ate McDonald’s for a month and gained no weight and felt no other ill effects because she made wiser decisions in her food choices and did not otherwise dramatically alter her lifestyle.
