Chris Collotta Sociology 107 Paper # 3 Fast Food Nation The average American’s diet has drastically changed over the past 50 years due to a booming economy and the rise of hyper-consumerism. Today Americans consume more fatty foods, drink more soda and live less active lives than any past generation. Because of consumerism there are more shopping centers than there are high-schools in America. Within everyone of these malls you can find food-courts lined with McDonald’s and other fast-food restaurants. In our post-modern society people have less time to sit and eat healthy meals because they are working more hours than ever before to pay for items that they can’t afford. With this loss of free time in everyday American society there came a rise in the number of “fast-food” restaurants across the country. So today America is ranked the 9th fattest country in the world by Forbes.com “with nearly 237 million Americans currently overweight.”(Forbes.com)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
