It's not about seasoning. I was talking about the crap that gets fed to the cattle. I have to warn you, if you start reading about this stuff, you'll probably change the way you think about food.

It takes a big-time commitment, and that includes lots of motivation (for example... I worked real hard to get healthy, and now I lost 10 lbs). Bad food is addicting and lack of results is very de-motivating. When that progress is disrupted because of misinformed food choices, that makes the whole process very hard.
I understand what you're saying and it's very possible that I take a lot of this stuff for granted. I spend a lot of time researching it because I find it interesting and practical. (I've improved my allergies, body composition, and overall health over the last few years largely by adjusting/improving my nutrition)

On a very basic level, I think everyone knows that calories out>calories in=weight loss. I agree that people get confused by marketing into believing they are reducing their calories when they really are not. That part can be frustrating, but the info is out there just waiting to be read. Also, I used Big Mac as an example because I thought we were talking about fast food. I really don't think anyone thinks their fast food is going to help them get healthy.
