Fast foods and prepared foods equal fat foods.
Fat Food Nation reveals why fast food, restaurant meals and prepared food calories provide more calories than your body needs.
Over 60 percent of Americans are classified as overweight or obese. Excess body fat is linked to dozens of serious preventable diseases including:
- Type 2 diabetes
- Heart disease
- And some cancers
Over 60 percent obtain 60 percent of their calories from prepared and restaurant foods. Convenience has replaced home cooked meals.
For more than 50 years, Americans have been eating more calories while burning fewer calories. In the age of mechanical and electronic labor savers, the emphasis has been on eating more instead of eating less. Most Americans are eating the wrong types of foods. Foods providing more calories per meal than their bodies need to maintain a healthy weight.
Besides adding calories, many prepared foods have thousands of man-made chemical additives that have not been fully tested for safety.
Fat Food Nation compares the ingredients and nutrition values for many popular fast food and prepared foods against equilavent home made foods.
It also reviews many marketing claims designed to make unhealthy foods appear to be healthy.
