In recent years, studies have shown that Americans are becoming more obese each year. The culprit is the increased use of fast food. Fast foods also interrupt family infrastructure because dinner is an important strategy for communication among family members. Last, the convenience of fast foods contributes to American laziness.
These are just a few reasons that Americans should eat less fast food. Personally, the American people should come back and sit at the table for a home-cooked dinner. Again, they consist of the concern for our bodily health, the health of the family infrastructure and how much the American people depend on the swiftness of fast food. Philadelphia, our hometown is ranked as one of the most obese cities in the country. Studies have shown that the American people are the number one consumers of food and yet the least populated country.
For scientific studies have shown Americans eat up to five times more sodium and saturated fat than is supposed to be eaten by a human being. In fact, greater than 97 million U. S. citizens are over weight or obese or about 54. 9% of men and 50. 7% of women adults.
What has become the value of the body? Americans have become totally and utterly saturated in the instantaneous need for good food, flashy media feed and a reasonable price. But the price is much greater than anyone is concerned about. Common knowledge shows that serious health dangers come into affect such as clogged arteries, high cholesterol, high blood pressure. Now, what if us Americans were willing to sacrifice a substantial amount of time each week to spend more time with our families.
People nowadays are mostly seen munching there way at fast food restaurants during lunch breaks, snack time or even at dinner. A lot has relied on fast foods because it’s a quick and easy meal to grab on the go. But just how common fast foods are around the globe? Well, a research proves that fast food chains continue its explosive worldwide expansion. According to Addie Patrico, “There are around ...
More talking and at the table dinners, studies suggest, improve family communication skills and increases general libido with every family member. This doesn’t mean that the table dinner will automatically solve one’s family’s problems, but why even assume that the result is automatic? We need to get out of our “right now” craving heads that not everything comes in automatic fashion. Some things no matter how desperately you try, cannot be done with speed and if we all just attempt to slow the pace down and reconnect to the roots of the American dinner table we will find the most precious things are established with time. Not sent through a package or an email. Finally, the body is nothing without the mind dictating its every action.
Therefore, each action of each American waiting in line for their b iggy-sized meal has a deeper meaning. What is everyone truly in line for? It is not just tasty food at a slender price. In my mind it’s the need for the instant, the available, the convenient. My answer to this instant email societal manifestation is due to our whole country turning electric in the metaphorical and actual sense. We all need everything in front of us at electric speed. DSL, cable, the Internet, faster cars, faster planes, faster living; we are all becoming so preoccupied with the flashiness of society that were losing the things that actually hold society together, family.
It is not the actual at the table dinner that holds the solution, but what lies in it. Just as fast food chains are not the real problem, but what can be created with its sheer instant, “have it your way, right away” driven market. How easy is it for all of us to be just preoccupied in our own melodramas while chopping down on a Whopper rather than discussing the problems we face with our family. And this is where I believe the problem with many Americans still stays and will stay, as stable and recognizable as the golden arches.
But if another parent assigns regular household jobs to children, these children would hate their new step siblings who don't do anything. That's unfair and they may argue, complain or even fight together. The last main problem is about the house space. When new family members move into the other's home, the adults and children may have to share the bedrooms, etc. Sometimes the teenagers are ...
