Most fast food establishments� main food offerings include fried food, burgers, milk shakes and other similarly �unhealthy� foods. Many have noted that this has contributed significantly to the growing trend of health problems in the US, such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease. Fast food is a cheap and convenient way to eat when people do not have enough time to prepare and enjoy a home cooked or traditionally prepared restaurant meal. Although many chains have added some �healthy� items to their menus, such as salads and fruit and yogurt cups, even these items are often not that healthy, with full fat dressing, mayonnaise, full fat yogurt, full-fat cheese, bacon, etc.
