As a college student, you need to find a lunch or dinner cheap and fast. Usually when I go from class to class I have limited time to eat lunch so I usually eat at fast food place. Since I don’t have much time or money, I would go to McDonalds or one of the fast foods places that in the area. Plus, I work at McDonalds so I often get discounted or free food from there. $5 can get you more food such as Big Mac, medium fries and a drink at McDonalds than at a different place where you can just get a salad. By eating out at fast food places than making a healthy choice, leans to eating more industrial foods and less naturally made foods. Which also leads to Obesity.
Obesity just keeps growing in the United States. The reason mostly because of the cost. People say how they want to be healthy and have home cooked meals but in reality it is hard to keep to that choice when 2 cheeseburgers at McDonalds is $2 while a small sub can be $5 or more. Obesity is connected with high calorie crops and sugary foods. which is also connected with industrialized foods. To decrease obesity, healthy foods need to cost less so people can stick to be healthy and not feel like they have to buy fast food or unhealthy choices.
