Each day, 1 in 4 Americans visits a fast food restaurant McDonald’s. In 1972, U.S. spent 3 billion a year on fast food – today we spend more than $110 billion. 60 percent of all Americans are either overweight or obese.
Obesity has been linked to: Hypertension, Coronary Heart Disease, Adult Onset Diabetes, Stroke, Gall Bladder Disease, Osteoarthritis, Sleep Apnea, Respiratory Problems, Endometrial, Breast, Prostate and Colon Cancers, Dyslipidemia, steatohepatitis, insulin resistance, breathlessness, Asthma, Hyperuricaemia, reproductive hormone abnormalities, polycystic ovarian syndrome, impaired fertility and lower back pain…
McDonald’s has decided to become part of the solution – not the problem.
Mcdonald’s will no longer serve overweight customers, clients with a weight limit in excess of 180 pounds for ladies and 250 pounds for men. Youngsters’ weight limitations will fluctuate relying upon age and tallness.
So how will McDonald’s know how much you weigh?
Will McDonald’s employees ask customers and trust their answers?
No. McDonald’s will place scales at the front of every cash… You must stand on them when ordering or you will not be served. They also plan on posting signs to let customers know that they have the legal “Right to refuse service to anyone”.
