Maybe Americans are finally going to start taking better care of themselves,since they won’t be able to get/afford timely health care,due to rationing and high deductibles,coming, as a result of Obamacare.This is a negative for fast food places,that don’t provide healthy food.

Pay no attention to jr906202. McDonalds can be nourishing to people, a man lost over 60 lbs eating McDonalds every day, three times a day. The key is caloric intake and exercise. And although I disagree with Obamacare, it has nothing to do with this article.

Thank you cranberries.
Self control is key. We can still enjoy or guilty pleasures as long as we don’t over do it.
What I can’t figure out is if profits are falling and less customers are going, where is this happening at? It’s probably demographics but there isn’t a time of the day when I don’t see the line for the double-drive-thru at my local McDs not be long all day and night. 10:30pm, 11pm, doesn’t seem to matter – there are seldom less than 10 cars in line (and it’s moving).
