  • 1 in 3 US adults eat fast food each day

A new study has revealed something that shouldn't come as a shock to too many people - Americans love their fast food. But in the US, it's something adults just can't seem to live without.

These numbers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are based on a survey of about 10,000 adults over four years. While about 45 percent of people in their 20s and 30s said they'd eaten fast food over the prior day, that number dropped to just under 38 percent for people in their 40s and 50s, and about 24 percent for people aged 60 and older, the study found.

All in all, the report's findings are what most experts would expect and mirror fast food consumption patterns found among children, said Jennifer Harris, an associate professor in allied health sciences at the University of CT and director of marketing initiatives at the Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity, who was not involved in the new CDC report.

Health officials say too much high-calorie fast food can lead to obesity, diabetes, heart disease and other health problems.

Weinandy said while it's not realistic to tell people not to eat fast food, she would like to see healthier options.

It's commonly believed that low-income adults are more likely to eat fast food due to the cheap prices, but the report found fast food consumption actually rose with increasing family income level. Among all adults, a higher percentage of men (37.9%) than women (35.4%) said they ate fast food on a given day.

Black men were the most avid consumers of fast food - nearly 42 percent had eaten the fare over the past day, the report found. Slightly more men than women - nearly 38%, versus about 35% - reported eating fast food over the past day.

"In addition, a higher percentage of non-Hispanic white adults consumed fast food than did non-Hispanic Asian adults".

'Anecdotally, I know women are much more likely to pack their lunches and I see a lot of women eat salads because they're trying to watch their weight whereas men will eat a substantial meal where it's a burger or fries or whatever, ' said Weinandy.

That 91% was an increase from 79% of 771 parents in a 2010 survey and 83% of 835 parents in a 2013 survey, according to the Rudd Center report. "Consumers can find nutritional information on calories on the menu in most fast food establishments and restaurants".

'Things like poultry, fish, even leaner cuts of red meat - also picking more water and staying away from sugar-sweetened beverages and diet soda, ' she said.

"Adults can go to the grocery store more and prep food to take on the go so we don't have to get in a situation where we need to rely on fast food so much", she said.

'We know that people who are overweight or obese are more likely to be eating fast foods, but people really listen to their doctors, ' Weinandy said. "It takes time and some organization".
