    More takeaways on high street despite anti-obesity push.

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 23 Oct 2018, 11:51 am

    UK high streets have the highest concentration of fast food outlets in almost a decade, figures show.

    Despite town halls attempting to limit their spread, in most areas the number of takeaways per 100,000 people was at its highest since 2010.

    Research suggests people most exposed to them are nearly twice as likely to be obese.

    An industry group said proposals to introduce calorie labels on menus could hit independent shops.

    There is no doubt that fast food might be delicious and that many of us, including me, use them far too often for the good of our health.

    If these fast food companies were made to make their food less fattening and more healthy they might lose a bit of their trade but in the long run they would still get our custom so long as the food stays tasty.

    Comments please ?

    It is true that the most fattening of foods is also the most tasty of foods and that is a hard one to get right.

    That said I think that it is the convenience of the fast-food joints that makes them so successful.

    Without a doubt it is the convenience that makes the fast food outlets so favourite, especially when it only takes a few seconds online or on the phone to place an order with any fast-food chain we like.

    So long as we do not take all of our meals from fast-food outlets we should be fine with normal exercise.

    I restrict my fast-food consumption to one meal a week and I am slim and fit.

    These meals are a bit like an addiction as once you get into them with the convenience of never needing to cook for ourselves they can get a grip on us that is hard to stop.

    That is the exact problem Angie: the convenience and great taste of fast-food draws most of us to buy these meals much more than once a week.

    Yes, the grip that fast food has on us is certainly driven by our laziness in not wanting to cook for ourselves.

    In this fast world maybe we just don't have the time to stand and cook.

    Mind you, I suppose that we should make time for cooking.
