I spotted this article on my Yahoo main page and had to comment on it. As someone who has finally broken his fast food addiction, I can sympathize with the report. After all, while no one forced me to eat fast food, it does seem as though the food is stacked against the eater so that the issues of convenience and cost as well as the questionable properties of some things in the food work against the person buying the Big Mac. Cf. Super Size Me for a case study.
Here's the question though. What constitutes fast food? It's a little like pornography. I can always explain it but I know it when I see it. I used to follow the principle that if a restaurant had a drive through, it's fast food. If that is true, then Subway is fast food, given that I hit the Subway on my way back from the talk so that I would have eaten something worthwhile that day.
In a strange way, I think this proves the matter of you are what you eat. I just don't know why.
