One rule - fat people being made to eat too much by 'big boys'.

"35% added sides like chips to meal"

 

34% bought a larger coffee

I think people drinking calories is a huge issue.

Hang on. I thought being fat was alright, nay even beautiful.

Whats the So-Called BBC doing here, some sort of fat shaming.???

Shame on you Bbc. 

Fat women are beautiful and healthy. "Liam Smith, 25, from West Yorkshire" was a fat, white man and it's apparent to anyone with eyes they are disgusting and unhealthy.

Places like Starbucks are offering big buckets of coffee that have about 15 teaspoons of sugar in it.

Whenever I'm asked about changing any order anywhere I try to get the salesperson to go into great detail about what it is they're offering.  From my point of view I've made a purchase decision and they're just trying to get me to spend more, and the only retaliatory action I can do is to waste their time.  it is a bit puerile, but these little things amuse me.

Anyway, the problem isn't that people are 'going large' at the hamburger joint, the problem is that so many people see the hamburger joint as being a normal daily meal choice.  I mean, they have a role in providing cheapish emergency food on a day out (although I don't partake myself), but daily!

To be honest, my daughter likes 1/4popunder cheese burgers but prefers carrot bags to fries. And she normally just has a milk.

I really dont have a problem with that. Neither does she, as shes whippet skinny.

I've just been watching a Mcd's drive thru. It's busy and the clientele seems surprisngly well-heeled, a lot of quite milfy women in newish 4x4s with the kids very few stereotypical overweight chavs, I wonder if they're priced out of Mcd's a bit these days.

The clientele changes quite dramatically depending on what time of day in most of the stores.

Put a gherkin down your pants, see if you lure a milf down there.

The most common upsells to be taken included larger coffees,

 

With my loyalty card fully stamped I usually for the large black coffee on offer rather than the regular black coffee - how many calories is that. 

Is that so wrong - does that make you one of the baddies if you do that.

They give you the choice - yes or no - they don't quibble if you say no as they don't have the time - you can always say no - say no - some people have no control.  Just say NO - no thank you.

Maybe they could write an article why they don't do half portions which aren't called child portions and which are usually more than adequate.
