Tick Tock Case Study

Tick Tock. He is a ticking time bomb with Diabetes. Caesar Barber a maintenance worker that eats 4 to 5 fast food meals a week, he has be doing this for years. He thought by them saying “ 100% beef” it was Healthy for him. They don’t sugar coat stuff (hopefully he doesn't eat that too). Well, he had a heart attack which was predictable. He weighed a whopping (whopper) 300 pounds. In NYC City and there is probably close fast food restaurants. He tried to sue the fast food companies for making him fat. He did it too himself, knows the health risks, he probably saw a dramatic weight gain. He would have a better chance of getting blood from a rock. No, he shouldn't of tried to sue them.

First, he did it to himself. It is self explanatory. Caesar Barber ate 4 to 5 meals a week. If he thought McDonalds, Wendys, KFC, Burger King, Chick Fil A, was good for you. One bacon burger is 740 calories, 370 saturated fat, 1480 sodium. That is in one burger. They have people that make 100 burgers just to pick one, glue seeds on it, airbrush it. For god's sake do you really think they are. Fast food is a treat you are not supposed to eat it every day.

Like I said in the other paragraph, there is 1480 grams of sodium, sodium is salt. A gram of salt is equivalent to a crumb. That is one thousand four hundred eighty crumbs of salt. Gross just talking about it. If you saw 100% beef, shouldn’t you look at the rest of nutritional facts. He “thought” it was gratifying for you. Thought doesn’t mean it

    White Castle was so popular that even when the stock market crashed in 1929, White Castle would still open restaurants in New York, and New Jersey a year later in 1930. Things were running smoothly for White Castle during the 1930, and into the early 1940s, when meat rationing started due to World War 2, so in 1943 White Castle started selling hot dogs, and eggs (N.A. n.d. 2). The first major change comes to the hamburger chain in 1949 when they will add five holes to the burger making it cook faster. In 1955 White Castle makes the first major menu change by finally adding the fish sandwich to the line up.…

    Caesar Barber has rapidly gained 100 pounds and has flat out accused all the fast food restaurants for his weight gain which lead to his nearly fatal heart attack. “ They said 100 percent beef,” Barber explained. “I thought they meant it was good for you.” How air headed can a person be? Barber has consumed four or five meals per week from fast food restaurants for years. Caesar Barber should not be able to file a lawsuit from the fact he decided to ingest this terrible, non-nutritious food almost daily.…

    Obesity rates 50 years ago were no higher than 15%, but today Mississippi and West Virginia top the charts with record numbers of 35.1% (Levi). Calories, along with many other unknown facts, can be consumed throughout the day and not burned off properly at a steady rate if no physical exercise is accounted for. In a Burger King Triple Whopper Sandwich alone, there are over half a day’s supply of calories, not including a side order and a fountain drink. However, quite an abundance of people believe that the meals all fast food places serve are loaded with junky ingredients and fat additives, but Subway, Panera, and Jason’s Deli are a few names who try to remain as fresh as possible (Oches). At Subway, the six-inch foot long with the most calories hits at 570, nearly half of the largest at Burger King.…

    A single sandwich is half of the suggested calorie intake for an average adult for one day. So eating one sandwich from McDonald’s may not be a problem; it becomes a problem when a person eats that and two other meals. As a result, the body cannot burn the exceeded amount of calorie, so it stores it as fat. A hamburger is high in calorie is not because of the portion but because of what’s inside the burger. In the article “10 Things the Processed Food Industry Does Not Want You to Know,” Dr. Joseph Mecola states, “Processed foods are virtually guaranteed to contain additives that are linked to obesity.…

    Compared to the 110 billion a year Americans spend on fast food today, the 6 billion a year in the 1970’s doesn’t seem like much (The Conscious Reader, “Fast Food Nation”). It has become common to see and hear several fast food advertisements on the radio, on television, on the internet, and even on billboards. Even if most Americans know that fast food is unhealthy, 80 percent admit to eating fast food at least once a month and half eat it weekly (takepart.com, “Guess What? A New Poll Shows Americans Still Eat a Heckuva Lot of Fast Food). The typical American eats around three hamburgers and four orders of fries every week (The Conscious Reader, “Fast Food Nation”).…

    As McDonald’s continued to expand across the nation, in the mid-1960s, it needed to compress employment costs, diminish the number of corporations they bought from, and guarantee that its fries tasted indistinguishable at every store within the chain. McDonald's started switching from their deliciously fresh potatoes to frozen french fries in 1966 and only few consumers realized that there was ever a nonconformity. Nowadays, McDonald's fries come from large industries that peel, slice, cook, and freeze two million pints of spuds each and every day. McDonald's is the biggest purchaser of potatoes in the United States today (Schlosser 669). The flavor of McDonald's french fries is part of a very important role in the chain's achievements.…

    I 'm not sure what my real sodium intake is. I used SuperTracker for my food analysis and for food like chicken noodle soup, they have sodium level already entered.

    The smell can be compared to your first meal after eating a month of hotdogs and ramen noodles. When you consider the price and the friendly environment of the restaurant you would not expect much quality in the food. The quantity of the food depends on what you order. The customer can order either a half slab or full slab of ribs. A steak can be as small as a six ounce to a 23 ounce steak cooked to order.…

    He says that being able to eat McDonald’s was a treat for his eleven year old son, Isaac, because he doesn’t get the chance to eat from there often. Pollan notes that is not the case for most American children today. “One in three of them eat fast food every single day.” (151). His wife, Judith, was not so impressed with having a fast-food lunch, because that meant giving up a “real meal”. But Isaac brought up an idea that she could order one of McDonald’s “premium salads” with the Paul Newman dressing.…
