I am disgusted that according to Fastfood Nation, a fabulous book and the Economist, a fabulous magazine, Americans eat between 1 and 3 cheeseburgers and a week. I eat 3 cheeseburgers a week twice a year, at ADAPT. Are you near the average or not?

cripfemme I am in the US and in California and no I haven't had a cheeseburger in months, its a treat once in a great while and I really doubt some of those blasted statistics too. I think lately its been open season on us Americans, why not do some blasted statistics on other countries for a change as I am sure cheese burgers are probably sold in other places even the united kingdom. I am disgusted that they would print that hooey as I do not see any of my friends and neighbors eating that many hamburgers in a month let alone a week. How did they even arrive at that stupid idea? here in California an awful lot of people are really into healthy eating. this statement about Americans makes me Angry not disgusted As I do not think its true of most Americans.

You live in California, a very healthy place. In New England, we eat pretty healthy as well. I'm the least healthy eater among my group of friends and I'm not that unhealthy of an eater. My assistant and I both suppose that all those average Americans live in places like Alabama, South or North Carolina, Mississippi,Wyoming or wherever. The places my assistant and I consider the less evolved people in our country reside.

wyoming less evolved wrong there are a lot of really intelligent ranchers in wyoming,have you ever even been there? No they are not neanderthals, they are smart healthy people who probably would lAugh at being called less evolved. wow. thats really a low blow. now texas red necks are a bit stupid and probably eat a ton of cheesebrugers but I have noticed most ranchers I know prefer steak to cheeseburgers. look America might be young compared to other countries but we are all pretty well evolved.he he he he

nope not me, I haven't had a cheese burger since last summer. We don't go to fast food places, but some times we cook out on the grill and make some burgers with 93% lean beef and then I will put some cheese on it with some multi-grain bread. I might put on some lettuce and tomatoes too. Now you are making me hungry.

I don't live in town, so fast food places aren't very near me. I average maybe 3 cheeseburgers a month if you are lucky. I think it all depends on whether or not if you live in a big city. If you are around it more you are bound to eat it more.

The article is here: http://www.openthefuture.com/cheeseburger_CF.html and I live next store to a McDonald's, but I hardly eat it. So you're theory doesn't hold water with me.

Not an American and not near the average. I eat maybe one cheese burger a year, maybe one hamburger without cheese a month. I prefer hamburgers without cheese, not because of the calories but I like spicy sauce more and both seem like bit too much for me. Now I got hungry, too late for a burger to night but maybe tomorrow :-)
