Who is buying fast food burgers?Posted on June 8, 2017
The perception many of us have of the person who indulges in unhealthy fast food is an uneducated, person of a low socioeconomic status. A recent online news article showed this perception to be inaccurate. According to the article it’s not just the cash strapped family who is frequenting the fast food drive through. As a matter of fact, according to the study a household earning $60,000 a year eats the most fast food, and one bringing in $80,000 is actually more likely to eat fast food than one with $30,000. Suddenly, last year’s findings by the CDC actually makes sense when they found that nearly half of the obese adults in this country are not poor but rather middle-class. The article states that unhealthy fast food has less to do with price than anything else. The facts show that mostly it is convenient and whether people admitted or not, they like the way fast food taste. So, fast food reform on behalf of the poor doesn’t fair well against the facts. As the middle-class who engages in these unhealthy diets realize that the weight is unhealthy as well as unattractive but hope is they will kick into gear and actually lose the weight. When this happens, Dr. Kim helps patients who have lost large amounts of weight to achieve a better contour. Typically, an abdominoplasty is needed to remove the excess skin in the abdominal area. For many patients who have lost weight the excess skin can prove to be unsightly and depressing. Dr. Kim removes the excess skin as well as tightens the abdominal muscle to achieve the best contour available for the patient. When patients invest in plastic surgery procedures after weight loss not only are they more likely to keep the weight off, but overwhelmingly as a group they are more confident and have higher self-esteem than they did prior to surgery.
