Fast food for family meals: relationships with parent and adolescent food intake, home food availability and weight status

International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity. Rapid increases in the prevalence of obesity in the US over the last 20 to 30 years have been well documented and their causes much discussed [1, 2, 3, 4].

Because of the speed of the change, it has been argued that the cause is more likely to be environmental change, broadly conceptualized to include physical and social factors, than to biological change. Exploration of data on environmental trends has identified a variety of potential environmental contributors. One trend that has attracted particular attention in both the scientific and lay press is the dramatic increase in eating away from home, and particularly at "fast food" outlets. The scientific case for "fast food" restaurants as a causal factor in obesity is based on several observations. First, time trends in eating away from home roughly parallel the national time trends in obesity prevalence [5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10].

What Fast Food Does to Your Body

It’s cheap, convenient and marketed to us when we’re young, in the hope that we’ll be consumers for life. For many companies, that strategy has paid off. But there’s a wrinkle in that math. If we eat too much of this stuff, that frequent consumer’s lifespan could be a lot shorter than if he’d eaten more food unassociated with clowns, colonels, kings and freckle-faced girls with red pigtails.

Fast foods, energy density and obesity: a possible mechanistic link - Prentice - 2003 - Obesity Reviews. Fast foods are frequently linked to the epidemic of obesity, but there has been very little scientific appraisal of a possible causal role.

Fast foods, energy density and obesity: a possible mechanistic link - Prentice - 2003 - Obesity Reviews

Here we review a series of studies demonstrating that the energy density of foods is a key determinant of energy intake. These studies show that humans have a weak innate ability to recognise foods with a high energy density and to appropriately down-regulate the bulk of food eaten in order to maintain energy balance.

Fast Food Menu Price We all know what happens to our bodies when we drink a can of coke, or mix alcohol and energy drinks. Now, a new infographic from Fast Food Menu Price, reveals the significant toll a McDonald’s Big Mac can have on our bodies just an hour after eating it. The 7.5-ounce iconic burger consists of 540 calories, 240 of which are fat. According to the infographic, the burger can cause a spike in our blood sugar levels while increasing the likelihood of compulsive eating after just 10 to 20 minutes.

The sodium levels in a Big Mac (970 milligrams) are also a cause for concern, since the amount in one Big Mac is 42 percent of the daily recommended salt limit. If you are hydrated, then there’s another reason you might crave seconds 40 minutes after eating a Big Mac. Fat, Sick & Dying: What Processed Foods are Doing to Your Body – Nutrition Secrets.
