There is a reason why so many people are obese. The main reason is food, the kinds of foods are not just fast food but food what we call junk food. Who is responsible for this, is it the people who consume it or is the companies that produce and promote their food. I think they are both to blame and there is always a good and bad in everything. If you are twenty percent over your normal weight you are considered obese. We have to make the right choices when it comes to food because we decide what’s good and bad for us and we are free to choose but not from the consequences.
In our society we all know that McDonalds and other companies target young kids into consuming their unhealthy food which causes obesity. Most kids are introduced into these kind of fast foods through advertising and toys which kids prefer the most. Some foods are addictive which makes them come for more and more and it makes them more obese. “advertising is nothing new, but is more prevalent than ever”. (Barboza) He also said that there are more schools that offer fast food choices mostly because some schools have contracts with companies. “You are what we eat”. (Ludwig Feuerbach).
If you consume fat you become fat. If the Companies produce products or foods that are unhealthy for human consumption but for their own benefit they will find the most efficient and economical way to produce the food at a lower cost also that it’s affordable to most people. If companies become more responsible and produce food that are beneficial for human consumption then they would have had more costumers and more happy customers when it comes to their health. We should also realize that there are good and bad out there and our choices may reflect on how we make that decision.
The TARES test is useful in evaluating whether the advertisements are part of an ethical way of advertising. While the TARES test will not solve all ethical problems in creating ads, it does give creative people, marketing directors and strategic communication planners a tool. The -T- stands for truthfulness which evaluates whether an ad is honest or not, and whether it is used to deceive the ...
If fast food companies were never established this problem wouldn’t have existed. I think that the companies are to blame for starting fast food, but I don’t think they had an intention to make their clients obese but they base it on business by making their franchise more affordable also think that the consumers have no idea what they are consuming due to the ignorance in nutrition or health. But most people know what’s good and bad for them and it’s their choice and decision to buy and consume whatever’s good or bad for them.
And I also think that there is always a good and bad to everything, like light for darkness, the lie and the truth, good people and bad and sometimes life is like a magnet where there is a south and north pole different fields one negative and the other positive. We as humans should make the right decisions and choices when it comes to problems like this where we analyze the issue and come up with an answer. We are free to make choices but we are not free from the consequences of our choice. They should not let the company be the only people that are responsible, but they also have to know that 50% of the time it’s their fault too.
If they decide not to consume fast food and adopt top a natural healthy diet, these companies would have not grown so fast and inflicted people’s life in this way. The other reason is that people should realize how many bad choices they make, “If You Pitch It, They Will Eat” (Barboza).
If they use advertising to promote food the people will consume it if they convince them, because it’s cheap and easy and they tell you only the good things about it which may tend you to not think about bad things about it.
Homemade food is often treated as a privilege. Low cost of fast food and its nutrition value become a solution for many families who have neither time not money to cook at home. Warnings that fast food is not healthy do not stop Americans who treat it as an essential part of their daily diet. As a result, the prevalence of obese and overweight people plummets. If we look at what is behind ...
There is another reason why people are obese. “It’s Portion Distortion That Makes People Fat. ”. (Brownlee)According to this the amounts of food served in American restaurants are more than 2000 or 2500 calories and may exceed required. One calorie is how much energy it takes to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water by 1 °C. And the excess calories and fat that we don’t use are stored in our bodies if we don’t work out or exercise those turn into fat.
The other ingredient is SUGAR also known as High fructose Corn Syrup and many other name s are given to this substance so that people are unaware what they are consuming, this is very harmful to your body it’s in Burgers to salads and it’s unhealthy to consume such ingredients because it causes diabetes, heart disease and many other illness. They offer bigger sized drinks for a smaller amount. They don’t care what they sell as long as it helps their business develop. This also shows us that the problem with fast food companies is that they serve more food than what’s needed.
Because people think the bigger the food and the smaller the price they got themselves a good deal, but it’s not how much you spend that matters at the end its how much you consume. People go to fast food restaurants because they are too lazy to cook and the price is cheap and it’s FAST, so it takes less time. People should realize what they put in their mouth, it’s like eating off a trash can which is humanly disgusting, but we do realize the starvation in other parts of the world where we can witness this. Parents are also responsible for their kids’ diet. “It’s parental responsibility. ”(Gonzalez).
She is trying to show us that parents are responsible for what their children put in their mouth. For instance she wants to know what they are letting them eat these unhealthy food when there is available food in the refrigerator. “The Battle Against Fast Food Begins At Home. ” (Weintraub) But people tend to eat fast food because its time saving cheap and fast. Fast food companies don’t care what they feed their customers they are just concerned about the profit. If parents give their children the time they deserve they will not be eating such food. “Eat a lot, do nothing and get fat, eat a lot Exercise a lot and stay healthy.
The fast food chains we have come to know and support make up one of the biggest industries in the nation. Every day, these corporate giants churn out Whoppers and Happy Meals to millions of consumers. However, it is not a coincidence that so many people are attracted to these chain restaurants. It is a result of ingenious marketing. Over the years, the fast food industry has used many cleverly ...
If we eat fast food and still exercise, we will be fine. But for some people no matter how much it’s really hard for them to bring down their weight to normal. If you just eat and do nothing but watch TV you are definitely collecting unwanted energy which is stored in your body which causes body fat. The bigger the room the more stuff you can put in, that’s how our body works in order to save more energy it creates more space and that’s what we call obesity. There are people out there that don’t have other choices other than fast-food. “Obese children don’t have access to alternatives or calorie charts” (Pamela).
People sometimes don’t realize what they get themselves into because of ignorance in the field or some people don’t have choices. Now McDonalds have their nutritional values labeled on everything but the print is so small that some people will need a microscope to look at it. Only the price is big and appealing. “Fat People in America. (Schmoe)There was over 60% obese people in America including kids. Now that has dropped to 30% and it’s stayed constant for the last couple of years. And people should take fast food moderately and not overdo it. “How Can You Put THAT In Your Mouth? ” (Valencia).
Some people know how bad fast food is but they still eat it because they are too lazy to make their own food. That laziness is what causes obesity. “McDonalds Target Kids by giving them toys with the meal and they have no understanding about nutrition”. (Wong).
I agree with him because if McDonalds didn’t offer toys with their meals there will be less kids consuming it because they will have no reason, their trying to get kids to eat it the first time and they will keep coming back for the toys or the food. “Don’t Blame The Eater. ” (Zinczenco) Sometimes the eater will not know what they are getting themselves into.
This is how they sustain a long term business using kids who have little or no knowledge about food or what kinds of food they should consume. “Why settle for unhealthy, fatty, disease causing fast food, when you can eat healthier foods? ”(Dietrich)Why do people even make the choice to eat these foods if they know it’s bad for them? It’s because it’s out there, you just have to do what you think is good for you. We know that Fast food companies are responsible for promoting foods that are unhealthy for kids to consume because kids have no or little understand when it comes to food.
Hamza Shahid Department of management sciences Institute of management sciences (Pak-AIMS) Lahore, Pakistan com Abstract- The study has been to find out the business opportunity in fast food industry and the factors associated with its expansion at such a rapid face.

They should try not to target kids and promote something that’s healthy for kids to eat. Adults have an understanding on what’s good and bad for them they should just not do what they think is not right for them. And the other reason is that you can’t blame McDonalds because they are not responsible for their choices. They will start suing the motor companies for speeding because they made their cars go faster than 65MPH. There is a limit to everything, you just have to stick to it. If you can’t take responsibility for your own choices who do you think will do it for you.
