hum..i think people shouldn't blame the food that made them fat. They should be responsible for that too. I worked in fast food place before, work like 4-5 days there every week. And i alway eat the food from there, but i didnt become overweight. I have enough exercise, have to walk about 60 mins everyday between home, school and work. Many people eat alot of junk food, rarely do any exercise, thats why they getting bigger and bigger. Also you have the choice to pick food that have less calories, healthier food to eat.

It definitely can, depending on how much you eat it and how often. A Big Mac with a large fries and large soda has enough calories for an entire day for the average person.

fast food does not make a person fat. if you do not eat properly you will get fat. people should not sue fast food places. fast food is very unhealthy and should be avoided. it's okay to eat once in a while but i reccomemned you never eat fast food. never eat deep fried food either, which is what french fries are.

If you eat on fast food everyday, of course it will help you become fat. But there are a lot of factors included in becoming fat or not. If you make exercise every day, if you glandular system is ok, to go to fast food once a week won't be a problem...

Well, I definatly believe it does, Just one hamburger has like 30 grams of fat. That is how much fat you should have in 2 days. I am glad alot of fast food are carrying diet foods, but even those you have to watch.

Not enough physical activity makes us fat. You shouldn't eat this kind of food all the time but it is possible to burn of a Big Mac.

YES!! Most fast food is fat food! Some of the chains have healthy choices, but a lot of them don't taste that great. I think my favorite chain is Wendy's because they have the Frescata sandwhiches, baked chips, good salads, baked potatoes, and other things that aren't going to cause a heart attack... only half way kidding about that!
