how often do you have junk food? fast food is one of the mian culprits responsible for nearly half of the all American being overweight today. it seems lile everywhere i look there are advertisements for fast food restaurants. every time that i turn on the television or the radio. chances are good that the next commercial break will have at least one fast food cpmmercial. the commercials are constantly trying to convince me how wonderfully conveninent and cheap it is for me to eat at the fast food restaurant. they try to convince me that i am smaerter than people that do not eat at their restaurant because the price is so small and the quatity of food is os large. the people starring on those commercials are always fit and trim, nothing close the obese person that is created by the fast food industry. basically evrything about those fast food commercials is a lie. on the other hand i believe that people should be able to eat what they want to eat. i would not want to see all of the fast food restaurants closed occasionally i find it convenient to stop in for a cup of coffee, a coke, or even a salad. not everything that is soid at fast food restaurants is bad for our human bodies. what i would like to see would be more truth in advertising. put the real information out there and let the people make informed decisions. occasionlly a piece of chicken or a cheeseburger is not going to kill a person. it is when people begin relying on fast food as their main source of sustenance that the problems begin. i believe that the most dangerous thing about fast food is that it tastes so darned good.my wife and i have always tried our best to educate our children about the dangers of fat food and we have rarely brought them out to fast food restaurant. when we do end up eating junk food we stres the fact that it has beeen so long sine we last ate the fast food. unfortunately children are so susceptible to advertisements on television and radio but they are not dumb. children will listen importantly to be good role models by not bringing them out to eat junk food except for on those rare occasions like a birthday treat or straightA's on their school report card.

When I was still in school I eat junk food a lot as in almost everyday for snacks, during gathering of clasmates and friends, study groups, late night snacks etc. Then when I started work it's seldom just when somebody brings a junk food and you can't resist the offer or during special occasions like parties. I've learned to buy much healthier snacks because I don't like to waste my hard earned money for junk food. Sometimes though during grocery shopping and there's a new product for chips or the like, I will buy for a taste test but only the smallest pack. Going to fastfood is seldom because it's very expensive eating out in fastfoods. I only go if someone's going to give a free food trip for fastfood and junkfood.
