About 25% of americans eat fast food more than twice a week. Everybody eats fast food at one point or another. It just depends on how much you eat and what you eat. If you consume fast food more then once or twice a week that’s probably more then you should. Not everyone has a perfect diet however eating fast food consistently is not one of the healthiest choices.
Fast food industries scored a 48 out of 100 for the Federal Nutrition Guidelines for Americans. Fast food usually has a high amount of calories, unhealthy fats, sugar, and sodium. Fast food also contributes to obesity. Eating fast food once in a while isn’t nearly as bad as multiple times per week. Fast food restaurants usually dont focus advertisements on healthier eating options, however restaurant menus do a have a selection of healthier options that are sometimes overlooked.
So if you decide to stop by a fast food restaurant once in a while say maybe one to three times a month while regularly eating a somewhat healthy balanced diet, then I wouldn’t worry too much especially when you have the option to order healthier options. So yes fast food is bad for you no matter how you look at it but consuming it every once in a while isn’t terrible.
