Admit it. Sometimes, as you lay on your couch at two in the morning, you crave junk food. The crispy, golden edges of French fries, the juicy, mouth watering hamburger, it’s enough to send you into a craving fit. Don’t worry; you’re not the only one. Fifty million Americans are served at 160,000 fast food restaurants
in the United States. That’s a whopping (or whopper?) number. The fast food industry makes $110,000,000,000 from the pockets of hungry consumers. That’s a lot of dough. If you’re feeling guilty about the number of trips you make to your local McDonalds, check out these statistics to calm or heighten your brewing fears. Forty four percent of Americans visit a fast food restaurant once a week. Twenty percent visit twice a week, fourteen percent visit three or more times, and six percent visit seven times a week. Feeling better?
Fast food may be fulfilling at the moment, but statistics show they do more harm than good. Individuals consume thirty seven percent of their daily calories when dining at their local fast food restaurant. Daily fat from that chewy cheeseburger and fries meal is 33.6% while daily protein is a low fifteen percent. That being said, statistics show that fast food does more harm for you than good. If you’re worried that your hamburger may turn you into a true couch potato, don’t fret. There’s still time to right your wrongs.
