What if animals ate fast food? Would they mirror what Fast Food has done to humans?

Fast Food Culture is changing the shape of things

Our culture largely lives on a diet of fast food. It's fast, convenient and sometimes tasty. But it becomes an issue when it's eaten as a meal daily rather than a treat every once in a while.

In an article in the Huffington Post, a study from research firm NPD Group says Canada's food services industry will grow by less than one per cent annually over the next five years, a "modest rate" that signals an era of more intense competition.

Good thing, because they also stated that, Fast-food chains generate $23 billion in sales in Canada each year, with about 4.3 billion visits from customers.

Is this because we are becoming more aware of the affect fast foods have not only on our shape, but on our health and wellness as a whole.

Of course you could also say NO to Junk Food

Say no to Junk Food

We live in a fast moving world where quick is simpler. So it comes down to choice. Many Fast Food Chains are attempting to maintain their place by implementing more healthy choices such as salad, yogurt, whole grains, but are they REALLY a healthier choices? You are already at the window and what are the chances that along with that healthy salad, you slip in a donut or fancy coffee loaded with cream and of course CALORIES!

When it comes to fast food, “healthy” basically means food that offers you a decent combination of macronutrients, without going overboard on calories or potentially harmful things (like sugar or sodium, for people who have high blood pressure). The key here is moderation, and choosing as healthy as possible. Here are some things to keep in mind when choosing:

• Low in calories: For lunch, that means about 500 calories or less.

• Protein, to help you build muscles: Each meal has at least 10 grams of protein (ideally more!).

• Low in sodium.  Aim for less than 1,000 milligrams of sodium per meal.

• Low in sugar. Less than 20 grams of sugar.

• No trans fat: Trans fats are related to heart disease, so choose meals with 0 grams trans fat.

Here is a great resource for healthy choices at Fast Food Chains
