Firstly, the author discusses how In-N-Out is an over hyped product with nothing to show for all the fans the restaurant has. Olmsted states “The food: Despite its very passionate loyal following, the actual burgers at In-N-Out are not especially good. The very basic, thin fast-food patties housed in generic buns are nearly identical to those at McDonald 's or Burger King.” (Olmsted 1). I don’t agree with the author of the article when he states this. Being an avid fan of In-N-Out I believe that they are by far the greatest fast food restaurant in the Unites states.
“The strict rules at fast-food restaurants help to create food that always tastes the same. They help workers fill orders quickly.” (McJobs by Eric Schlosser and Charles Wilson) This supports my claim because it shows how fast food is inexpensive and consistent. This means that people that don’t have the money to go to the grocery store every week can put food on the table for their families that always tastes the same. Finally, the following quote shows that the fast food industry provides jobs for uneducated people. “When all the knowledge is built into the operating system and the machines in the kitchen, a restaurant no longer needs skilled workers.” (McJobs by Eric Schlosser and Charles Wilson) This supports my claim because it shows how the fast food industry provides jobs for uneducated people.
So, it isn’t that surprising that McDonald 's is famed and favored for having cheap food. In reality, their food isn’t as worth it in the long run. Bittman points out that the overwhelming number of calories their products contain cause harmful medical as well as dangerous environmental problems, the outcome
Snow Yu Bio 60 09/22/16 In movie "Supersize me", Morgan Spurlock did a social experiment with fast food where he attempted to eat nothing but food from McDonald 's menu for an entire month. From the start of the movie, I thought this was not a good idea for his body. But it indeed gave me an idea of what will happen to you if you do eat the way he did. In some way, I do think that Morgan Spurlock was just doing this for an entertainment but in a way it you can see how people are eating in America and how it is still happening. This movie is very old to know if the information are still correct but these days, there are people who would eat three meals a day at a fast food restaurant.
Zinczenko strategically uses emotional pathos through his example of obesity in children. Children are innocent in tone, therefore helping him explain that they are innocent in spite of the manipulation of the fast food industry. The author presents the issue of the lack of nutrition information in fast food. He’s not dissing the fast food industry; rather, he is stating the problem at hand that should be taken care of. He sympathizes with the fact that he too was once a kid whose two daily meals were from typical fast food restaurants.
It is common knowledge that fast food franchises don’t exactly serve “healthy” food. One does not drive to the nearest McDonald’s if he or she is in search of a health-benefiting and low-calorie meal. David Zinczenko’s essay titled “Don’t Blame the Eater” discusses how people should not be criticized for blaming the fast food businesses for the fact that they have gained weight and become unhealthy after routinely consuming the products of these businesses. While his paper may be well-written, it has one major flaw. Fast food is unhealthy, and no amount of arguing, suing, or nutritional information is going to change that common knowledge.
The fast food industry is constantly improving everything to get people to come back and order the “new,” that will benefit them in many ways. Fast food chains tend to always make their prices cheap and try to give the customers more bank for their buck, yet those calories aren’t helping one bit. People would think it’d be healthier to eat at school, though many students don’t like the school food and choose not to eat, therefore being hungry all day, disturbing the ability to pay attention in class. A student is expected to put their 100% in doing their best in school, with that said, if one does not have meals that energize them to keep going, how do teachers expect
“Fast food restaurants have us hooked on to their tasty food. You See a lot of people buying fast food because how good it tastes. Well let me tell you it is not good for your health. Why do fast food places lower their prices because they know people will buy it if it doesn’t cost that much and most people buy it cause that`s how much they can afford”. Fast food places is a way to not cook every week I feel bad for people when I go to McDonald’s and ask them, do you know what you’re eating in they say yes so I ask them, is that burger real such as real beef’ they say yes so I have to explain to them that you’re not eating real beef you’re eating a burger that has a lot of chemicals in it.
The fast-food experiment is one-sided and not a wide enough study, as there is only one individual/restaurant involved. In addition, every person is different in how his or her body processes food. Thus, for some individuals like Spurlock, by ingesting too many calories per day the inevitable result is weight gain. Yet, Don Gorske’s cholesterol remained at 140 after years of eating Big Macs (totaling 19,852) proving a similar stance in the opposing direction. Therefore, Spurlock’s findings for his one-sided experiment were too exaggerated and not scalable to the general population.
“Of course I’m not forcing you Elizabeth, there are many other ways even though it isn’t easy.” Max said. School was finally over and I thought of something. What if I tried eating like Max, who cares if I’m not in shape. Who’s there to impress. I found some burgers my mom made yesterday and started eating.
