I was reading the below post from Kim Klaver's blog (you know the health guru that I think is amazing) and found the below article startling. I mean yes I know fast food on a regular basis cannot be healthy but look and see how even one fast food meal can affect you. Fortunately I cannot even remember the last time that I ate fast food but millions do everyday and I doubt they realize just how fattening it can be.
Very. Each fast food meal you eat per week makes you - on average - ONE and ONE HALF pounds heavier than someone who eats no fast food...
Reported in USA Today:
"People who eat several fast-food meals a week are significantly heavier than those who don't eat fast food very often, according to a study presented to the annual meeting of the Obesity Society."
No surprise. Still, wow.
Highlights of the study:
*The weight of people who consumed three to six fast food meals a week was significantly greater than those who consumed no fast food or ate one to two such meals a week.
*Every additional fast-food meal during the week was associated with 1+1/2-pound increase in body weight.
