The pros and cons of eating fast food

Fast food gets a really bad press but we all love it and it’s very convenient. In fact the more convenient, the more bad press the food gets. While it’s generally true that fast food is bad for you, there are some pros to consider along with the obvious cons of eating this sort of food.

Let’s start with the downsides. One of the major downsides isn’t the obvious one about weight gain and heart issues (we’ll look at that stuff later) but the fact that many fast food chains are accused of not treating the animals humanely by groups like PETA.

Mystery ingredients are another issue with fast food. Consumers really can’t be 100% sure what’s in their chicken nuggets or how much potato their fries contain.

So let’s now look at the positives of fast food. The main thing that works in the favour of firms who sell fast food is that their restaurants offer convenient and cheap food. Even fatty unhealthy food is far better for you than not eating so fast food comes into its own when you’re extremely busy.

Today, fast food chains offer more choice than ever before and some of those choices are healthier than others. You can now buy salads at places like McDonald’s and you can opt for a diet drink (or even a water). If you look at the options available with a Happy Meal for example, you might be surprised to see that your kids can have milk or water in place of a sugary drink.

Government’s current regulations dictate that restaurants clearly display the calorie content of their food. This sort of information puts the consumer in the driver’s seat.

The choice really is yours. You can eat almost anything without too much concern as long as its part of a healthy and balanced diet and you have an active lifestyle.
