I don't know. Some times I think they should shut down all the fast food joints.
It all goes back to the days when I was a kid. We did not eat all this junk. We were not food focused. We were not fat and diabetes did not run rampant.
As a school kid, I never ate breakfast. Never. On weekends, my family always cooked breakfast. It usually consisted of scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage, toast or biscuits. They rarely made pancakes. Even on weekends, I rarely ate breakfast.
In school, as a kid, we had a break time before lunch that consisted of a little carton of milk and a cookie.
At lunch, it was normal food. There was no choosing in the cafeteria a variety of foods. You ate what you got, normal portions, and that was it. We could go across the street from the school and get a hamburger and fries and I often did that. But here again, it wasn't a quarter pounder globbed with rich sauce. It was a flat little hamburger with mustard and pickle.
At home on the weekends for lunch, there was no norm. If we got hungry at the lunch hour, we might have some vegetable soup or a simple sandwich.
At home for supper, there was always meat. Chicken one night, pork chops another night, minute steak another night, etc. They'd have the sides of some sort of vegetable, peas or corn, mashed potatoes, some sort of bread or roll. We ate normal average portions.
Timing for meals was always steady. In other words, supper was always done about the exact same time every night. My family was big on jello back then too so there was always some sort of jello it seemed for a dessert. We'd have home made pies some times, cake, etc but it was never a daily thing.
I don't know what it is today other than the advertisers constantly advertising food, food on every corner, billboards on every block, everything in America seems to circle within FOOD. Get married.....got to plan all the food for the reception, some one dies, got to take food to the departed families house, someone graduates, go out to eat, watch tv, got to have food to eat for the movie, .... on and on and on.
And people wonder why they are fat and wonder why they are sick and wonder why cancer is rampant in America and..... WE EAT TOO MUCH and WE EAT TOO MUCH CRAP!
