 Victoria Johnson - Not All Fast Food is Junk Food
Basically, using fast food for fitness is simply a matter of making the right decisions, and to do that, you need the proper knowledge, which I'm going to share with you in this article.

In this article, I give you specific tips how how you can still visit your favorite fast food chains and still eat well.

 Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal By Eric Schlosser review by Andrew Roe / San Francisco Chronicle 28jan01
Eric Schlosser's "Fast Food Nation" is a good old-fashioned muckraking expose in the tradition of "The American Way of Death" that's as disturbing as it is irresistible, and that ultimately calls for the boycott of one of the most powerful and lucrative industries in the United States.
Today very few companies supply the vast majority of the nation's beef, poultry and potatoes, the staples of the fast food diet; small businesses, ranchers and farmers are disappearing.
With cattle and sheep carcasses being incinerated all over Europe, with fear of mad cow disease spreading, with obesity and diabetes on the rise, especially among children, the American allegiance to fast food was ripe to be challenged.

 Fast Food Nation - Eric Schlosser
Fast food has to have something going for it and Schlosser doesn't adequately explain what that is. (We remind readers that we are not fast-food consumers and that we are truly baffled by the phenomenon of people paying for and consuming fast-food products; we would love to hear some sort of convincing explanation for it.
Given the popularity of fast food, and the amount of it ingested by Americans (and, increasingly, people all over the world) this is information that desperately needs to be spread among consumers everywhere (though not many people seem eager to hear it).
The industry seems to provide cheap, convenient, and fast food, and provide employment to a large number of people -- but the food is arguably not particularly healthy (or downright unhealthy -- and, occasionally, lethal), and much of the work is low-skill labour performed by teenagers and immigrants, teaching them few skills.
