retail news in context, analysis with attitude

United Press International reports on a new survey of the mostly female members of the Allrecipes social networking site revealing that 54 percent admit to feeling “a bit guilty” and 16 percent say they feel “bad” after eating fast food.

They must be feeling that way a lot. The study also showed that “more than 56 percent ate at fast-food restaurants at least several times a month and nearly 15 percent ate fast-food two or more times a week ... Half of the survey's respondents said convenience to accommodate busy schedules and faster meal availability were the top reasons for eating fast-food instead of cooking at home. To skip a fast-food meal and cook a healthy meal at home, 83 percent said it would have to be prepared in 30 minutes or less.”
