You just finished eating your Big Mac, when you start to hate yourself for getting fast food for the 3rd time this week. You keep telling yourself that your done this is the last time, after this no more. It truly seems like an addiction and you need to get your fix, but once that “high” goes away you feel guilty. You start blaming the fast food industry for having unhealthy food, and that their the reason America is becoming more obese by the day. But is it really their fault, have they been forcing you to get into your car and drive to their restaurant and then shoving the food down your mouth? No, they are simply a service that many people seem to be using perhaps too often?
Day by day people are becoming more used to the way things seem to happen instantly and appear right into their hands. No longer is it the age where you truly had to work for everything you had, and you felt good about that. In the past families got by without having to have fast food for dinner, they cooked home cooked meals every night and spent dinner as a family. However I do understand that now parents are working multiple jobs and scraping by with what little they have, so they can't afford to cook dinners at home, not just because of the cost but they simply do not have time between jobs and able to have a time to sit down as a family.
Fast food makes getting the family or yourself food a much simpler task and sometimes it is cheaper. The problem is people are upset with the fast food industry for causing people to eat unhealthy and causing medical problems. My question to them is always the same, “Whose fault is it?”. Why is it the industries fault when it is simply a choice, you can decide to eat it but you can also decide to not eat it. This isn't a world where everyone has to eat fast food and its the only food out there. If your going to eat fast food thats perfectly acceptable no problems from me, However there is one when you start to blame them for your problems when the fact is your choices are the reason you have the problem.
