If fast food is so bad for us, why do we continue to eat so much of it? For starters fat is addictive to our bodies. Fast foods include a lot of fats so the more we eat of it the more we crave it. It is usually also very low in fiber. Fiber is needed by our bodies to flush out all the preservatives and unhealthy things in the foods we eat. Without fiber the toxins build up causing diseases and other serious health issues. The average person would have to eat more than two times the required calories in order to gain enough fiber to allow their body to run efficient enough to digest the required number of calories still leaving the excess to sit there as build up. If we all start making better choices the fast food industry will have no choice but to offer us better foods. The consequences of better choices can only be positive for everyone.

    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.
