South Carolina Personal Injury Attorneys

It’s the height of the holiday season. With last minute shopping and deals to be had, many of us find it easier to grab dinner at a drive-thru rather than eat a health meal at home. According to the movie documentary called Super Size Me, each day, 1 in 4 Americans visits a fast food restaurant.

In 1972, we spent 3 billion a year on fast food – today we spend more than $110 billion.

Do you like swinging by your favorite fast food restaurant and grabbing food to eat at home?  If you are like most Americans, you must.

A new survey out of England found that the average person eats take-out approximately 2,875 times in their lifetime.  Based on the 62 years you’re an adult between and 18 and 80, that means you eat take-out approximately 46 times a year.

The cost of all that food is nearly $27,000!!

The survey said 28% of people surveyed said they eat carryout about once every two weeks.  26% said weekly, 9% said twice a week, and 6% said three times a week or more.

The most popular reason for eating out was people not in the mood to cook and getting take out was just easier.
