No, it isn't. You can't buy healthy food at those places. And besides, if you buy food yourself and cook a proper meal you're cheaper off most of the time aswell (and with the internet any fucking retard can learn this).

"America" is fat because a lot of dumb and/or lazy people either don't know or care about how to eat healthy, while refusing to get exersize at the same time.

Believe me, raising tax to fatty food ain't gonna do shit for obese people. It's like raising cigars price. That won't make them stop buying, they'll just spend more money on something that is a need for them. Fucking government in my country did it and it doesn't do shit

It doesn't help that almost all of our salads have the same if not more calories and fat as the burgers

Thats funny, because taxes go into subsidizing the corn and beef industries, which makes the prices that way in the first place

Ok and quick thing about expensive salads at certain restaurants , they usually serve iceberg lettuce, right? (its light green/white and is kinda sweet)  well that shit is basically , like humans, mostly water. So if you wonder why you get so hungry after a salad like that its because you ate a big bowl of mostly water and a few veggies. The only kind of lettuces that are legit are the dark ones. So basically you will pay an insane price for a bowl of half ass greens and veggies that will barely sustain you for an hour. (this makes me so mad mainly because it's half the reason people won't eat salads since their hungry so quickly after and the price is just makes the whole "get fit america" a  joke)

Oddly enough most fast food places; the salads are less healthy than the burgers.
User avatar #147 - aesis (04/09/2014) [+] (1 reply)
Yeah but most fast food places sell salads with extremely high amounts of sugar and salt so really they're as bad as each other.

I think the reason why so many Americans are overweight is because of how available fast food is. I live in Ireland and I'd eat fast food maybe three times a year, not out of choice, just because it's easier to make my own food, I'd only eat out if I was with friends and we were hungry enough. A lot of my American friends would go out every second day to Wendy's or KFC or whatever for their dinners.

The government shouldn't do shit, it's up to each fattass to eat however they want. If they want to kill themselves by getting obese then I don't care.

**neogiga rolled image** Sorry to correct you, but there shouldn't be a unhealthy food tax.. The government would just be enforcing another money grab tax. Consider a healthy food subsidy, that's the future.

if it is a fast food place, there is a good chance the burger is healthier

Even if the prices were reversed, I'd still get the burger meal.

It makes sense.

With all products, the higher quality costs more. If salad and water are better for your health, why not charge more for them? It's a commodity.

Dude, you found one random picture (and probably on the internet too) and you're going to explain a nations obesity problem with that?
User avatar #29 to #28 - fables (04/09/2014) [-]
it is the truth. healthy foods cost a fuckton more than greasy shit and carbs.

actually the salad has more calories in it
User avatar #25 to #24 - teufelhunden (04/09/2014) [-]
It depends on which salad you get. Sure... If you get the Southwest Salad with loads of extra shit and creamy southwest sauce, then yes....

This is why America has some of the best chefs and home kitchen heroes. Why pay that much when either one could cost you like 2 bucks.
