McDonalds gets richer and America gets bigger

 

We have an ongoing obesity problem that leads to numerous other medical problems. Our children are continuing to get bigger and bigger as are many adults. These are known facts that most of us have witnessed at least in some degree.

Knowing the severe consequence of eating poorly, McDonalds has reported that U.S. sales are up 8.9 percent, nearly double that of Europe which only rose 5 percent. We have to ask ourselves why this figure rose to such degree. Is it that we have given in, do we need more proof or is it that people are succumbing to lessening the U.S. dollar?

The worst diet foods

Seemingly healthy yet misleading diet foods that should be avoided

 

Have you ever considered the type of food you reach for when you enter into the diet world? Often people have false confidence in believing that this food or that food is a good food choice. This is primarily a result of high paid advertising gurus.

Yogurt is a common food that dieters pick with the assumption that yogurt is a healthy snack. In actuality, yogurt on its own has 15-16 grams of sugar. Add on common yogurt additions such as added fruit and flavorings and you’re looking at an additional 15 plus sugar grams. In comparison, two Little Debbie Swiss Rolls contain 27 grams of sugar.
