    Well ….. I must admit that a 1/4 pounder w/cheese was once my favorite vice. Then it became a habit, then an addiction. I kept asking myself, self…why can’t you ever seem to lose weight? Then i’d spot the arches and…well.

    I’m happy to say it’s been years (and 40 pounds) since I visited MickyD. But, the choice was mine to make, the path mine to take and thus the accomplishment more satisfactory.

    There are many people that can eat whatever they want and never become overweight (I married one such alien).

    You know what gets me? They had to make part of the menu “healthy” but yet no where else do they say what they serve is meant to do anything but taste good and satisfy your hunger. You do not want that? Eat somewhere else. It is not their job to weigh you and tell you how much you can eat. If you can pay for it, you can eat it. And that is how it should be. If you do not know by now that eating a super sized meal and the only workout you get is from your door to the car, drive through, back to your door, can make you fat, then you deserve to be fat.

    A few years ago I did a paper on the whole “McDonald’s makes you fatter!” hysteria as part of my MBA.
    []
    Among my findings?
    []
    1. The film “Super-Size Me” is invalid from an academic or scientific standpoint, as the author left no actual record of just what he supposedly ate; without this record, it would be impossible for anyone to reproduce his experiment.
    []
    2. Two different people conducted experiments to determine whether or not a person could improve their health by eating at McDonald’s. Both people ate each menu item once, then went to their preferred style. Both succeeded. Both left records of the meals consumed. One man followed a modified Atkins diet and kept a written log, while the other made it a point to substitute for healthier options (such as going for tea or coffee instead of soda) and kept the wrappers & cups as visual proof.
    []
    3. School lunches and school fitness programs are, on the whole, more important in determining a child’s level of obesity than fast food, yet get far less attention. For example, the majority of school lunches served by the city of San Francisco would fail the standard the city put in place for Happy Meals… which is both ironic and hypocritical given the fact that the city council member who pushed for the standard was once in charge of the city’s school lunch program.
    []
    4. A number of foods deemed “healthy” actually aren’t. For example, in some regards a hamburger can actually be healthier than a “Deluxe salad w/ chicken”.
    []
    The long and short of it is that it all comes down to (A) schools needing to ensure that people get a good education in regards to nutrition & fitness and (B) people needing to take responsibility for what they do and do not eat.

    The Dems are already talking about the Hamburger Tax.

    Or maybe they will just limit people to one small cheeseburger using Obama(non)Care as an excuse.

    @ConserveGov

    Glad you found an angle to politicize the subject. Your sponsors must be proud.

    There was a Hardee’s commercial that I saw just one time.
    It showed a very pregnant woman, standing, holding the biggest burger with everything, using both hands, and the narrator said, “Enjoy it while you can, you won’t be able to come back (to Hardee’s) for 13 years.”

    Well, when you go into a McD’s, the menus all have the caloric value of each item printed on them.

    I’m calling out Britt for buying into the hysteria instead of doing his own research.

    I eat at McDonalds several times a week, and I am in the best shape of my life. They do provide relatively healthy options for those that choose them. I only eat a few items off the menu, but they are not the evil monsters that some in the media and politics make them out to be. It is all about personal responsiblity, portion control, and common sense, which all seem to be lost these days.
    -
    I am always amazed at the plates you see people piling up at buffets and all you can eat restaurants. I don’t eat at Hardees and some restaurants where the portion sizes are monstrous and loaded with calories (or don’t have many healthy options), but respect those that choose to eat there.

    Darren Blair said (among other things): “The film “Super-Size Me” is invalid from an academic or scientific standpoint, as the author left no actual record of just what he supposedly ate; without this record, it would be impossible for anyone to reproduce his experiment.” And most scientific papers are pretty bad movies.
