i have refused to eat processed sugar for two years now, why? because there is no need for it with products like splenda on the market i can fix any sweet tooth i get (which isn't very often) without bulking up on the calories.

This whole ordeal of blaming fast food restaurants for our obesity is just another cop out in my eyes. The American way, as of late, seems to be to find someone else to lay our shortcomings on.
Fast food was around long before this obesity epidemic and it is NOT to blame.

I have to disagree with you on this. There are chemicals being put in the food to make people addicted to it. And I think more chemicals are being added or increased on a regular basis to get and keep people addicted to the food that is so unhealthy for them. People don't know this is happening so in my opinion, it's really not completely their fault. Yes, there are the warnings that fast food is unhealthy and you shouldn't be eating it, but an addiction is an addiction and if people don't realize they are addicted to the food, they can't really do much to change it. Besides that, the food is so cheap and some people cannot afford to eat healthy. They just don't make enough money to eat healthy food.

I don't understand or buy into any of this. I can't gain weight to save my life, and I love fast food and 'junk food'. How much do all these people eat? How can they afford it?
This isn't a conspiracy, this is personal idiocy.

You know, they aren't forcing you to go there. And even if you go there, you don't HAVE to go there four times a day, every day.
Why does fast food have to change? Why do we have to make an excuse? Is it really the fast food industry, the evil corporations that pump us full of fats, fault? or is it really us?
Its not like you wake up, and its all you have to eat, and they are there wish a big turkey baster filled with a french fry smoothie. And they just stick it up your nose by force and make you swallow it all down.
If you go there, and you get fat, thats your problem.
