Fast food becomes more popular now, especially among the teenagers and the children. Why do so many people like fast food?
For one thing, it's very fast and convenient. It always serves in no time, so we can either eat it in the restaurant or take it away. For another, because of the different ways of cooking, it looks nice and tastes delicious. What's more, the service and environment is good, so that we can have our dinner in a happy mood.
However, in terms of nutrition, it's far from satisfactory. Most fast food is junk food. It contains so much sugar and fat, which makes us put on weight so easily. Since the westerners have the fast food every day, most of them have heavy weights, high blood pressure and bad teeth.
Therefore, I suggest that we should eat less fast food but more nutritious dishes.
Fast-food is becoming more and more popular in China, especially among children, teenagers and white-collars.
There are several reasons for its popularity. First, it's so convenient that saves a lot of time. Your just need to go into a fast-food restaurant, order your food, and your food is ready in time. Second, you can have many choices, various collocations of food. And you can eat it there or take it away. Third, the environment of fast-food restaurants is both clean and comfortable.
However, in terns of nutrition, it is usually not a balanced diet and low in nutritional value. Usually, fast-food is rich in sugar, so that regularly eat fast-food may cause obesity.
Fast-food is only a good choice when you are in a hurry and turn to it once in a while. But for people, especially children, eat fast-food as little as possible.
In present-day China, fast food is so popular, especially among children and teenagers, that it can be seen in every big and medium-sized city. It’s even difficult to think of any other single thing that represents the fast pace of modern society in the way that fast food does. Some people think it is very convenient and saves a lot of time. The trends of modern society seem to all point to one ultimate goal—saving time, and fast food well serves this purpose. In their opinions, its popularity is also attributed to the restaurants’ clean and cozy environment, excellent service, and guaranteed quality of food and drinks.
However, others maintain that fast food is usually low in nutrition and can’t be regarded as a balanced diet. For example, doctors suggest that people, especially children, eat fast food as little as possible. Besides, although cooking at home is time-consuming and the following washing-up tiresome, it offers healthy and delicious meals your body needs and likes.
As far as I’m concerned, fast food is not my best choice. For one thing, I prefer traditional spicy Chinese food. For another, being engaged in the work all day, I may spend one or two hours to prepare my favorite dishes to ensure myself a nice rest. As a result, fast food is only a good choice when I am in a hurry and resort to it once in a while.
