Food: Are we a country of hypocrites?

To a person, everyone I know hates the big fast food joints. Yet, someone is spending billions at their restaurants. Here's a list of the most hated fast food restaurants. McDonald's is the most hated. BTW, Starbucks tied with Burger King.

5. Burger King
ACSI score: 76 (out of 100), same score as 2013
4. Dunkin’ Donuts
Score: 75, down 5 points
3. KFC
Score: 74, down 7 points
2. Taco Bell
Score: 72, down 2 points
1. McDonald’s
Score: 71, down 2 points

Hardly ever eat. I don't find much on there menu interesting. The original chicken sandwich is the best
4. Dunkin’ Donuts
Only one near me and I don't normally go. Seems ok though
3. KFC
Not a big fan. I like the potato wedges but not their main dishes
2. Taco Bell
Eat here quite a bit
1. McDonald’s
I love their fries but don't really like any of the lunch menu items. Go some for breakfast

I think the hating popular things is just a trend. Every single person I know would tell me they were sick and tired of the "Will Favre come back" talk or Tebowmania but it wasn't being aired because it was hurting ratings. lol, some of them must have been watching

Yes, people are free to eat whatever they want. I'm not the kind of condescending guy who sneers at people who eat unhealthy all the time. It starts with education and step 1 of that education is not defending places that make bad food and letting people know exactly the damage they're doing to their body. If they want to keep making bad decisions but know what they're doing, that's their freedom. It's why I don't agree with things like soda bans, but I agree with better dietary education and also agree with more transparency that restaurants should be obligated to show how they are prepping their food.
I'm not sure this is true. If more people eat healthier food, especially fresh fruits and vegetables, supply goes down while demand goes up. Prices increase in that kind of environment.

I have not eaten at one of those places in quite a long time. I did have a Sonic burger after a float trip last month. It was mighty tasty.

Exactly. The supply is already down.

We're devoting almost all of our domestic resources to growing corn, soy, wheat, pork, and beef.

If you want to fix the market, you have to start there and not even with food. With plastics and petroleum.

While hating popular things may be a trend, I seriously doubt that hipsters are to blame for the poor reputation of fast food.

I don't eat fast food, and I hate it. It tastes nasty, doesn't fill me up, and gives me indigestion.

Fast food isn't popular because it's awesome. It's popular because it's cheap and easy and it tends to be most commonly used by people who are poor and lazy. There's a lot of those around now. There's a reason they put McDonalds in wal-mart stores.

Yeah, I never suggested that such a goal is realistic. Of course, neither is expecting an entire population to eat healthy.

I was merely pointing out that the problems with our food economy and our health go much deeper than just "eating healthier".

It's popular because it's FAST.

A good many people that aren't lazy, poor, or fat eat fast food because they wouldn't otherwise have time to eat.

When I'm working 16-18 hours a day like I have been the last 3 weeks, it's impossible to eat healthy 100% of the time. There's not enough hours in the day.

It takes less time to open a can of soup than it does to drive to McDonalds.
