New Orleans Fast Food Fat Loss Failure

Back in the nineties Fast Food companies tried to change.

They tried coming out with lighter and lower fat versions of their sandwiches and tacos and everything else.

Know what happened?

The “healthier” versions on their menus failed miserably. And I mean miserably. They were all pulled and replaced by newer options that were bigger, fattier and more calorie laden than ever before.

Seriously, they stopped pulling punches and did what any smart business should: They gave people what they wanted. And in the case of Fast Food companies that meant adding as much mayo, bacon, cheese and beef as they possibly could.

That’s when we started seeing the Triple Burgers and Mega Burgers and tacos wrapped in melted cheese stuck to yet another taco.And people were more than happy to gobble them all right up.

I believe, fortunately, that we’ve come to a point where people have realized that it’s all just too much. To some extent people are waking up and realizing that they cannot afford to get sick. They cannot afford to eat garbage all the time. They are understanding it WILL catch up to them.

Kentucky Fried Chicken has been in the news lately because they are trying a new Kentucky GRILLED Chicken. Supposedly it tastes as good as their fried version.

Now I don’t know if it does or doesn’t. And to be honest, I don’t much care. You see, the fact of the matter is when people go to Fast Food restaurants and order something “healthier” like grilled chicken they typically off set it by eating every french fry in sight. Or drinking a 64oz cola.

There are better choices to be made. And if you plan your day you won’t be in a position where you have to gobble a meal down at KFC, McDonald’s or Burger King.

Things like:

Low fat cottage cheese

Hard boiled eggs

Fresh fruit and veggies

Raw almonds

You could also go with A protein supplement .

Look, the bottom line is simple: A little bit of planning and some smart food choices go a long way to getting that flat stomach you’re looking for.

Yours in health,

Jonas

P.S. If you haven’t seen the Movie “Super Size Me” you should really check it out, good stuff!

I’ve watch the “Super Size Me” documentary and it was definitely an eye opener. I think everyone should watch it. You’ll learn about so much more that just the pitfalls of an American fast food diet.

Great write up! It’s so true, I did like that they had lighter choices, but I think I may of been the only one. I seen Super Size Me and it was great at keeping me away from fast food for about a year! Then I guess I forgot about it or something because I started craving french fries, you would of thought after seeing that experiment I would never touch a fry in my life, but I grew up on that crap.
I don’t eat fast food often I’d say maybe twice a month at the most, but once is way too much. I think it’s time to rewatch Super Size Me!
Thank you for the great reminder.
