Almost every American has probably at one time or another eaten at one of McDonald’s many restaurants or they have at least heard of the mega fast food chain. For decades, Americans have enjoyed their array of menu items. Recently, people have been looking deeper and deeper into if McDonald’s is really a healthy restaurant to eat at. I propose that customers who enjoy McDonald’s food should no longer consume it because it can make you obese, the portions are way too big, and the food at McDonald’s is practically phony.
To start off, people all over the world that like the McDonald’s should not eat at the familiar restaurant because it could lead to serious weight problems. Hopefully, people who eat at McDonald’s will realize it is not doing them any good. Studies show that those who frequently eat at McDonald’s gained 10 pounds more than those who did so less often, and were more than twice as likely to develop an insulin disorder linked to diabetes.
Clearly, fast food eaters could gain more pounds especially if the foods that are high in fat, like the food served at McDonald’s. Therefore, if you do not want to get fat, I might steer clear from McDonald’s. The second reason as to why you should not eat at McDonald’s is because the portions are becoming larger. As the year’s progresses, the portions at McDonald’s are getting bigger and bigger even though you might not even realize it.
The problem is that people tend to eat or drink what’s in front of them.
We also significantly underestimate how many calories we consume. But even when consumers try to do right by their diets by choosing a small or medium of something at a fast-food chain, they may be getting more than they expect. Basically, this is teaching us that it is okay to eat what is in front of us, even if there is a lot. Last but not least, the food that they serve at McDonald’s is not authentic because of all of the extra additives that they have added just for the taste.
I believe that there is definitely a difference between real food and fake food. Real food is savory and in some cases it melts in your mouth, while fake food doesn’t even taste and the texture is similar to plastic. People deserve much better than fake food and that is the kind of stuff that you are consuming when you eat McDonald’s. I do not know about you but a sausage burrito containing 50 different ingredients including milk, egg, wheat, corn syrup, and a range of chemicals and preservative agents does not sound very tempting to me.
Not only that but the hash browns are cooked with animal products and the bacon contains wheat and soy. I just do not think that is right. The food that people eat should have real ingredients like potatoes in hash browns, not all those fake preservatives. You would not cook a meal at home with all of that extra stuff in it, so eating it at McDonald’s does not make much sense to me. Much of the food at McDonald’s contains extra additives. I think that we deserve much better than that. Just because of the ingredients in the food, I don’t think that we should eat at McDonald’s.
People that take pleasure in the food at McDonald’s should not eat there any longer because the risk is far too high. It can make you gain weight because of the extra calories and fats that you are consuming. The portions of the food have grown year by year and you may not even know how much food you are actually eating. Also, there are so many other restaurant alternatives that offer a much better selection of food that actually have true ingredients. So, the next time you go to eat at a restaurant even if a McDonald’s is nearby, I would rethink your options.
